Welcome to Bisispeaks
Bisi Adigun is a Yoruba man from the west of Nigeria. He is a playwright, theatre director/producer and scholar. Having lived in the UK for three years he moved, in 1996, to Ireland where he now resides with his Irish wife, Kate, with whom he is blessed with a daughter, Arinola.
To diversify Irish theatre and to afford African immigrants living in Ireland the unique opportunity to express and re-present themselves through the art of theatre, Bisi founded Arambe Productions, Ireland's first African Theatre company in 2003. He has directed all of Arambe's productions to date.
In 2006 Arambe commissioned Bisi and Irish novelist Roddy
Doyle to co-write a new version of J. M Synge's The Playboy of the Western
World. The new version subsequently had its world première at the Abbey
Theatre, (Ireland's National Theatre) at the 2007 Dublin Theatre Festival,
to an unprecedented critical and commercial success
