Speaking of her husband, the professor said, “She is also lucky to have a gentleman like him too because without his support and sacrifice, she can’t be where she is.”

'Live Burial' is Helen Paul's first work as a playwright, and she recently toured some Nigerian Uniiversities, performing the play with her crew.

The tertiary institutions attended include University of Lagos, Obafemi Awolowo University and Redeemers University. The drama received accolades from veterans like Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva and Dr. Ahmed Yerima.

The play will soon be performed in other institutions outside the country, considering how interest in the play has been developing.

According to Helen Paul, “Interestingly, we have actually received messages from some international schools requesting that we bring ‘Live Burial’ to their respective institutions. But we would be starting from Cameroon soon.”

The second phase of the tour is scheduled to kick-off later in the year.
