About the Book

A play set on a mythical hill, Ngoa and centred around Ngwa, the protagonist. Both mythic and contemporary, challenging and innovative full of accerbic social criticism, wisdom and political meaning, the culminating point in this play is when the protagonist is cast out of the scene and the Narrator alone on stage wonders and wishes the audience told him whether or not to “continue crying for the village, sadly or joyfully.” A turn which, in this captivating play, marks an arresting moment recalling the works of Strindberg in terms of character interaction, entrances and exits as well as the works of Ibsen in terms of its philosophy.
