Description

In a small Nigerian town, Ben and Obembe, along with their two older brothers, slip away to fish at a forbidden river. Unnoticed and carefree, they continue until one day the prophecy of a madman changes the course of their lives forever. Based on the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted novel by one of Africa's major new voices, New Perspectives, in association with HOME, present Chigozie Obioma's powerful allegory of brotherhood, vengeance and fate in a new adaptation by Fringe First-winning playwright Gbolahan Obisesan. 'Impressively slick adaptation' (Time Out on The Boss of It All). 'Brilliant!' (ThreeWeeks on Finding Nana).
