Dolly Unachukwu joined the Nigeria film industry ‘Nollywood’ around 1986. She started film studies at Television College, Jos, where she studied Television Production in the late 80’s after acting in ‘Mirror in The Sun’.
The TV series, ‘Fortunes’ made her a household name with Liz Benson, Regina Askia and Ramsey Noah among others. The actress since then featured in movies including; “Deadly Affair,” “Glamour Girls,” “Love Without Language,” to name a few.
Dolly is a renowned actor, scriptwriter, producer and now director. Her pioneering role in the Nigerian movie industry is described as legendary and unforgettable.
While settling in London with her family, Dolly Unachukwu acquired a three-year degree course in Films and Videos at the East London University Dockland amongst other movie-related projects.
The veteran actor is back to stay and prepares to capture our heart once again, first by exposing some scandalous activities in Christian churches.
Broadway is a story about members of an African church called House of Grace. The story is centred on the pastor’s wife who does not understand her role but rather acts like a movie star, a very arrogant and proud woman who has no respect for her husband or for the members of the church and would not tolerate any form of disrespect herself, she sacks and hires members as she wishes and acts more or less like a slave driver, she does not hesitate to ask her husband the pastor whom she is cheating on with the assistant Pastor, to sack anyone that does not agree with her policy simply because she brought him from Nigeria to England after they got married, she makes sure to remind him she is the reason she is a successful Pastor in England.
The members of the church are of course from different social background comprising of Nurses, Lawyers, drug pushers and users, divorced pastor, adulterous pastors and abusive and controlling husbands, this church has it all under the same roof on Sundays, the abused are keeping it quiet and believing prayers will change their abuser, But in all of this there is hope and grace for all. How does the African church deal with the gay couple who has every right to be in the church as them especially where the sister is a pastor and is ashamed to introduce her brother to the congregation.
Broadway is a story that addresses the happenings around the African church, the good the bad and the ugly, and it’s a story that will interest everyone because so many real-life issues are addressed in it.
