Towards The Development Of Theatre Practice in Nigeria:
Concept Publications Limited, Lagos
This paper examines the practice of theatre in Nigeria and looks at its declining fortunes. It attempts a historical overview of theatre practice and observes that the question of the viability of theatre was not in dispute until the advent of the Nigerian video industry, How did this adversely affect the practice of theatre? What are the reasons that can be adduced for the development? Why is theatre practice on the decline? The paper attempts to decipher the problems and offer suggestions on the way forward; which in the opinion of this writer,rests on the need for the repackaging of theatrical productions by paying more attention to the design and technology aspects of production.
