The UK premiere of Kwame Kwei-Armah satirical drama about the history of Nigerian independence.
Beneatha and her husband, Joseph Asagi Funmilayo - who is a rising political star in Lagos - are moving into their home in the white suburbs in 1959. But before long, overbearing aunties and mysterious neighbours drag the young couple into the political storm of Nigerian independence, changing their lives forever.
In current-day Lagos, a group of Ivy League professors meets with Beneatha to decide the future of their university. Tensions run high as they debate whose histories should be taught.
The Young Vic Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah writes & directs this new play.
