The National Theatre in Accra was packed to the brim on Saturday, July 29, 2023, for the much-anticipated stage play ’The Dilemma of a Ghost.’
The play, written by the legendary late Ghanaian playwright Ama Ata Aidoo, tells the story of Ato Yawson, a Ghanaian man who returns home from the United States with his American wife, Eulalie.
