I remember the first time I visited National Theater as part of a school excursion…I was absolutely enthralled. I would watch plays again and again and shortly before I left Nigeria… I got a treat of a lifetime by getting to see the theatrical version of Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart

Wole Oguntokun – known to us in the blogging community as the effervescent laspapi is the writer and director of the Anatomy of a Woman which will be showing this weekend at the Agip Recital Hall, Muson Centre. It features a very colorful cast of characters.

to find out more about his other plays and read his ‘no holds barred’ paroles écrites
For those of you who missed the play – Omohemi has written a very insightful and descriptive review
