Lagos - The Chief Executive Officer, Renegade Theatre, Wole Oguntokun, on Monday lamented the dearth of script writers in the country.
Oguntokun, a playwright, said in Lagos that Nigeria needed good script writers who could put their minds into writing of plays.
"If we have good script writers who can come up with good and viable stories every time, acting on stage and film directing will not be too much for us. The script writers should be able to challenge themselves to do that so often, so that we will be on set all the time,” he said.
Oguntokun said that those who have been writing should be able to allow people to criticise their works.
"If people put their minds to it they can write good plays but I don’t know what is really happening in the arts sector,” he said.
He said that writers should have a platform where their works could be open to criticisms so that the person can learn from it.
