A Cock & Hen Story
A Cock & Hen Story is a rare two-character play, a witty and fast-paced story dramatizing the lack of perspective, emptiness and purposelessness of the life of the common man. All the great questions are asked - what life is all about - who we are - what we are doing here - what marriage is all about, etc. But adrift as the couple in the play are, they find no footing to reach for answers.
I am Royalty
In the ancient kingdom of Warri, the penalty for incest was gruesome death; the culprits were buried alive. Prince Ogbe and Princess Amejuma are lovers and... well, siblings too. They get caught. But there is one extenuating circumstance - if only the woman they call mother, Oyinbo, will tell it all, and in time too!
Epken - Tiger in the Swamps
An odyssey of sorts - from the intrigues and traditional politics in the royal courts of the Oba (king) of the great kingdom of Benin over five centuries ago to an epic journey, a classic chase and warfare in the swamps and creeks of the Western Niger Delta and finally to a recognition of the futility of war, remorse and then peace and calm - it bears all the characteristics of the total theatre.
The Pastor's Child
A pastor’s child wakes up and begins to ask all the forbidden questions. The pastor is distraught. Is this going to be his dreaded apocalypse? Sure enough things grow from bad to worse as the penchant for asking questions becomes infectious. Meanwhile, his wife and a trusted family friend are in their own ways more than casually interested in the pastor's venture: The Tintinnabulation Ministry.
