OKONKWO’S INQUEST is a stage play inspired by Chinua Achebe’s classic novel THINGS FALL APART. The play intends to rationalize human reactions to strange cultures and dogmas through a post mortem on the fatal consequences of colonial assumptions of the African traditional structure.
Set in a land, not too far away from you. There lived a hardworking man, named Okonkwo, who never really had things easy in his early life, but worked his way to recognition.
With hard work and perseverance, Okonkwo became a respected person among his people. However, things took an unfortunate turn for Okonkwo; from a hero, he became the spite of Umuofia and was buried like a dog.
What could have led to this turn of fate?
The play which is directed by multiple award winning Theatre veteran Toyin Oshinaike and produced by Oxzygen Koncepts will premiere at Terra Kulture, Lagos on October 1.
Time: Oct 1st (1pm, 3pm & 6pm) & Oct 2nd (7pm)
Tickets: N3,000, N5,000
