Meet the Adebanjo's, Catford Theatre
The popular black British sitcom Meet The Adebanjo’s, which chronicles the escapades of a modern British-African family living in London, is set to hit the stage this Summer, after thousands of viewers emailed the show’s producers, demanding a live theatre production in celebration of the show’s one year anniversary.
Catford Broadway Theatre will play host to live showings of the hilarious independently-produced and - created show which has captured the imaginations and tickled the bellies of viewers around the world since it began in June 2011. The theatre show is directed by Oliver Award nominee and Associate Artist of the Almeida Theatre, Femi Elufowoju JR, alongside Shade Oladiti (directors of Angie Le Mar’s recent play “In my shoes”)
The story behind how Meet The Adebanjo’s got to be where it is now in just one year is an incredible tale of the power of technology and new media tools coupled with a visionary team who were passionate about bringing British viewers a slice of their own experience of life, as first-generation born British children of African immigrants. It has gone from being an online phenomenon which now has over 750,000 views, to a TV hit seen by millions of people on several SKY TV channels, a winner of 3 TV awards, international acclaim and is now making a highly-anticipated debut on the London theatre scene.
Catch Meet The Adebanjo’s on The Africa Channel (SKY 268) on Friday nights at 9pm.
