You have to destroy the old monolith to create something new.

Nigeria: ‘the Giant of Africa’. Conservatives rule over the biggest economy on the continent, and one of the largest and youngest populations in the world. What if the people wanted something different?

What if they got it?

A gripping tale of conflict and compromise, setting the scene for a political revolution in 21st century Nigeria.

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“Deft political satire built on Patrice Naiambana’s compelling central performance... Entirely engaging.”

Dave Fargnoli (The Stage)

“Robustly satirises Nigerian politics... A precise portrait of the temptations that beset a political idealist... Comic energy.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Witty political satire... packed full of juicy details and jokes that stay just the right side of crude... Hilarious.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“What a disappointment... We remain entirely uninvolved in this tiresome three-hander... Few answers and even fewer insights.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
