“You cannot make dodo without frying plantain.”
Nigeria: ‘the Giant of Africa’. Conservatives rule over the biggest economy on the continent, and one of the largest and youngest populations in the world. What if the people wanted something different? What if they got it?
Hackney-born writer Oladipo Agboluaje (winner of the Alfred Fagon award for Iya Ile/The First Wife) and director Rosamunde Hutt (Love, Bombs and Apples) join forces for this hilarious new satire about the state of populism in politics.
As time runs out to build a coalition, can Greatness Ogholi win power without losing his integrity? Could this the beginning of a new Nigeria?

Dialogue Theatre Club post-show discussion - Tuesday 7 April, 8pm. Join us for Dialogue Theatre Club – the post-show discussion for people who hate post-show discussions. Led by theatre critic Maddy Costa and Jake Orr (founder and artistic director of A Younger Theatre), Dialogue Theatre Club is a bit like a book group: the people who made the show aren't present, so you can talk freely about what you thought of it and how it made you feel – and get drinks and nibbles to share, too.
The discussion will last about an hour, is free to attend, and all views are welcome.
