Twists
Author: Obiageli Nnamani

ISBN: 978-022-269-3

Year: 2016

Pagination: 52

This play explores the intrigues and pain associated with a culture that questions the manhood of males without sons; the tradition that confers the heir in a polygamous family legal rights over the grave of his father’s wife, and more. It appears to be asking why we have continued to live out the destructive beliefs of our forebears even in the face of viable alternatives.

Ezeụlụ is only an arrow in the hands of his god. In fighting for Ụlụ and seeking revenge against his people, little did he know that that arrow could rebound and turn the predator into the prey, the pursuer the pursued.

Year: 2014

Pagination: 265

In this scintillating literary masterpiece, the author adroitly chronicles the ordeal of a renowned academic of African descent and European background who, hoodwinked by western civilization, inadvertently paved way for fate and his own personal intransigence to successfully conspire and strip him of his toga of a fulfilled life.

The Dragon’s Funeral

This reflects political maneuvering, gender emancipation and social conflict. It is a roar of protest against the masters who made the laws and the invisible rulers who enforce them. A brilliant and powerful innovation within the traditional framework of modern African drama, the play demonstrates clearly the full sophistication and vitality of the author, and surges with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire.

Pagination: 16

This is a mythopoeic play that directly and pungently interrogates the subject of democracy as practiced in Africa and other climes where it is made to assume the character of a hydra-headed monster. A well-hewn drama with a sumptuous dosage of phantasgoria, the play explores Nigeria’s democratic history with a beckon on the instrumental element of change for social development.

Here, the absurd, but spiritually arresting dramatic struggle of man with God as symbolized by Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot is creatively presented with finesse as only a seer can do… excitingly well written.

A Grain of Rice
Author: Ngozi Anyachonkeya

ISBN: 978-022-117-4

Year: 2017

Pagination: 80

A Grain of Rice is a thought-provoking moral which dramatizes the sad consequences of the follies of the youth on whom so much hope for the future is placed. The play criticizes the carefree student, the irresponsible parent, the unfortunate copy-cat; an uncaring society…it adulates dignity of labour, hard work, and the fear of God…

Quand La Flèche Rebondit

Pagination: 89

Une recréation dramatisée de Flèche de dieu de Chinua Achebe, L'épreuve d'Ezeụlụ et la chute qui en résulte coïncident avec la menace des valeurs traditionnelles du peuple d'Umuaro. Avec Ụlụ au centre des conflits flamboyants, ces racines sont menacées par la foi chrétienne envahissante et par un officier vindicatif du canton colonial britannique. Les gens, ainsi polarisés, ne peuvent que compromettre la loyauté qu'ils vouent à Ụlụ quand leur survie est menacée par Ezeụlụ et son dieu. …une dramatisation remarquable de Arrow of God.

Year: 2009

Pagination: 149

Winner of the Nigeria LNG Prize for Literature 2010. This is a play about living, loving and dying for the things we hold dear. It reveals the narrow purviews of the Nigerian nation, constructs deeper insights out of our social logjams, relates with the residual heritage of the nation and rises above the penchant for tragedy which the socio-economic situation in our country predisposes every concerted consciousness. Its theatricality is variegated.
