The drama directed by Lanre Quadri tells the story of how uniformed men extort innocent and unsuspecting citizens of their hard-earned income, just to augment their poor remuneration.

 

 

 

Speaking on the inspiration behind the production, Olutayo Irantiola, revealed his passion for using art to reform the society and instilling quality value.

 

 

 

He said, “With our Uniform is a satire about the law enforcement agency – Police force, fused with comedy and witty dialogue. The response of the law enforcement officers to the spate of protests in Nigeria is quite disturbing. My concerns are particularly about the injustice experienced by majority of our young and vibrant youths in the country.

 

 

 

 

“I am committed to telling the Nigerian story through plays. My art seeks to explore topical issues that affects the everyday Nigerian. The drama is an imitation of life and I am thrilled that it captures important facts in a subtle but entertaining way”.

 

 

 

Commenting on the play, Lanre Quadri who directed the drama said, “I am delighted we were able to bring our ideas to life and people were able to connect to the play. We were able to get talented crew and so rehearsals were done within a short time. I have always wanted to work on a project that addresses societal issues and I believe this drama would spur the change we desire. It also serves as a reminder of what was and what could be.”

 

 

 

The cast includes Damilola Adebayo; Ismaila Adeshina;Agnes Olayemi; Ogunse Tosin; Akintunde Tosin and Osho Olowu Micheal. Others are Adeniyi Oluwafemi; Christiana Ndukwe; Friday Onyenankeya; Lawrence Babatunde and Damilola Adeyinka.
