A statement issued by Mr Latif Abubakar,Producer of the play and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, said the objective was to help curb violence by equipping people with the skills needed to control their anger and that of others.

The play tells the story of a politician who is blind to the consequences of his bad temper. A few days to the long awaited nationwide presidential debate, he realizes how things are getting out of hand. He successfully seeks help from a Reverend; an anger therapist. How far can they go?
