Description
A bitterly ironic portrait of Nigeria after Biafra Madmen and Specialists is one of Soyinka's most excoriating portrayals of abusers and abused in the new Nigeria ushered in by Biafra. Set in the 'surgery' of a doctor, the play is populated by mendicants and the 'insane' all fodder for 'experimentation' by a shape-shifting doctor whose experiments may be more sinister than they may at first appear."Wole Soyinka's Nobel Prize for Literature is a triumphant affirmation of the universality of this novelist, poet, film-maker and political activist." (Guardian)
