Year: 2013

Pagination: 144

In this highly subversive rewriting of Shakespeare's The Tempest, the relocation of the site of power to both the female and History's “Others” is taken for granted. It is the emblematic and irreverent divesture of the Bard as the author(ity) par excellence of a universal human condition that makes Sycorax Irobi's most controversial play.

The Colour of Rusting Gold
Author: Esiaba Irobi

Pagination: 89

A farcical and satirical presentation of a decadent system in which values are scorned and its flaunting becomes a springboard that thrusts one into ‘success.’ The playwright artistically unleashes his contempt not only for the corrupt politician but also for the complacent masses. Since the past will always haunt and catch up with the present, we must take heed.
