“Sophisticated and stylishly staged, Inua Ellams pours a provocative gallon of petrol on the play’s eternal flame” - Daily Telegraph
“Incredibly dynamic with a youthful energy, a striking lead in Zainab Hasan, and plenty of wow in its stagecraft. The throb and thrill of the staging is beguiling.” - The Guardian
A torn family. A hostile state. One heroic brother. One misguided son. One conflicted sister, and the second is on the run.
A blistering retelling of the epic story from the writer of Barber Shop Chronicles, Inua Ellams.
