Description
This is a powerful yet comic tale of explosive family secrets and the dead hand of a corrupt patriarchy. Inspired by Chekhov but set in contemporary Lagos, Nigeria, Chief (Mrs) Adeyemi is engulfed in burial arrangements for her recently deceased husband, an influential entrepreneur with an extended family scattered across the globe. His children arrive from abroad to hear their father's Will. As they divide his estate an unnatural turn of events takes place and sparks begin to fly. "The Estate" is on tour in a production by Tiata Fahodzi ('theatre of the emancipated'), directed by Femi Elufowoju, Jr.
