MASVINGO – Hitting Masvingo streets with awe, a Beitbridge based drama group showcased a masterpiece of their work entitled Mai Yogie which they believe will be a force to reckon with in the arts arena.
'Mai Yoggie' , was produced by Honest Mpofu through his studio called Doctor Beit factory.
The melodrama, featuring Andrew Thom (32) as Celle, Sabina Masangudza (30) as Mai Yogie and Valeria Dhuvuro (5) as Yogie, touches on contemporary sensitive life issues of betrayal and cheating in marriage, pretence, stigma and discrimination.
With a careful fusion of these themes,the drama reflects that the eventual victim of parental inconsistency in marriage becomes the child who is stuck at crossroads of indecision on what to do.
In an interview with The Mirror Celle said:" The way we act is inspired by our observation of everyday life experiences in which the core values that mould a home; love, respect, and faithfulness have vanished".
He added that as an acting group, they are not limited to a specific genre because life does not follow a straight path.
"In our 22 plays, we have tackled different aspects of our lives such as crime, abuse and corruption, but we believe the latest one is going to do the trick basing on audience response so far".
Sabina aka 'Mai Yogie' said that if they had enough sponsorship they would have gone far with their plays.
She said:" We are thankful for the financial support and equipment we get from ward 3 councillor Gift Nyoni and our promoter Shedzo power. We are also asking the arts industry to invite us whenever there is a show so that we also get a chance to display our work".
