Last Sunday saw the end of the July run of Wole Soyinka’s Award-winning play Death & the King’s Horseman.

Our July resident theatre troupe, Performing Arts Workshop & Studios (PAWS) staged the play at Freedom Hall, which was directed by Kenneth Uphopho.

Death & the King’s Horseman bought to light the impact of colonialism in Nigeria and the effects the colonials had on Nigerian traditions. It subtley asks, who gives them the right to tell us what to do? This is our tradition and do we need guidance after all?

Though a serious subject matter injected with witty humour and banter, the audience gave both the 3pm and 6pm shows standing ovation.

We at Terra Kulture give a great and hearty thanks to PAWS for staging the play and most of all to Nobel Prize Winner for Wole Soyinka for writing a play that holds dear to our cultural heritages in Nigeria.
