All roads this Sallah break leads to TerraKulture arena, Victoria Island,
Lagos to witness one of the best works of Literature veteran, Prof. Wole
Soyinka- ‘Death and the King’s Horseman’ performed live on stage.
The play ‘Death and the King’s Horseman’ which is set in ancient Oyo town
describes Nigeria during the Second World War, when Nigeria was still a
British colony where after the King’s death, the king’s horseman commences
the traditional ritual that will ensure the smooth transition of the dead
king to the world beyond as the British colonial officer intervenes. As an
effect, the harmonious co-existence between the living, the dead and the
unborn is under severe threat, leading to a grave conflict.
The presentation of the classic play according to the organisers- Arambe
Productions and Mahogany International, will be the toast of town for both
dignitaries and regular people as it has been scheduled to run from 1st of
September to 4th of September 2017.
