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?
A sparkling satire on the state of populism in our politics, New Nigerians is the smash-hit new comedy from Oladipo Agboluaje (winner of the Alfred Fagon award for playwriting).
Following a sold-out run at London’s Arcola Theatre, Rosamunde Hutt’s side-splitting production arrives in Birmingham for six performances only.
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?
Director Rosamunde Hutt
