Set in a land, not too far away from you, there once lived a hardworking man, named Okonkwo, who never really had things easy in his early life, but worked his way to recognition.With hard work and perseverance, Okonkwo became a respected man among his people. However, things took an unfortunate turn for Okonkwo; from a hero, he became the spite of Umuofia and was buried like a dog.
What could have led to this turn of fate?
OKONKWO’S INQUEST is a stage play inspired by Chinua Achebe’s classic novel “THINGS FALL APART”. The play intends to rationalize human reactions to strange cultures and dogmas through a post-mortem on the fatal consequences of colonial assumptions of the African traditional structure.
Okonkwo’s Inquest is a devised theatre workshop play directed by multiple award winning theatre veteran, Toyin Oshinaike and is proudly produced by Oxzygen Koncepts.
