Heaven Has No Rage Like Love To Hatred Turned...

How many of us know where the phrase "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" originated from? How many of us know it's a paraphrase? The full phrase is actually "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned". This was a line in a 1697 English Play, The Mourning Bride by William Congreve. Yay! We learnt something new today. Enough with the literary history. But seriously, when one hates someone they used to love, it is so much more intense than hating someone one didn't particularly have any feelings for. That reminds me of another phrase "a thin line between love and hate". Oh yeah, how thin that line is.

That said, did you get to watch "Don't Mess with a Woman" last weekend? If you dint, shame on you. If you don't even know what that is, more shame on you. Naturally, I'm a nice person so I'll share. "Don't Mess with a Woman" is the latest play by Uncle Ebo Whyte and if you missed it last weekend, you can still catch it this weekend. It'll be showing again at the National Theatre on the 8th and 9th of September, 2012. 1st show 4pm, 2nd show 8pm on each day. Tickets go for GH¢40 and are available at Shell Shops at Airport, Achimota, Sakaman and Tema Community 11, Baatsona Total, Frankies at Accra Mall and Osu and Joy FM.

Nothing stops you from watching again if you already did though. Seriously, I could watch the play 100,000 times and not get tired and still laugh as hard as I did the very first time I watched it. Why won't I? With people sending testicles, singing and dancing bridegrooms and Indian jujumen, trust me, you can't help but laugh.

As with every Uncle Ebo Whyte play, there are of course some important lessons to be learnt. Come watch and find out the lengths to which an angry woman will go, to get her revenge on her boyfriend and bestfriend.
