House of Agnes is the second play by Levi Addai, described as 'an attractive new talent' by the Independent after his 2005 debut 93.2FM. The play is published as a programme text to coincide with the production by Paines Plough that opens at the Oval House, London in March 2008. After forty years of building a home in London, Agnes is retiring and moving back to Ghana. Her final wish is for her sons to live together under the same roof when she is gone. But her eldest, Sol, is living with a girlfriend Agnes loathes, and he won't move home until Agnes accepts her, and younger brother Caleb will do whatever it takes to inherit the house - except share it with Sol.
