Chigozie Obioma (A new adaptation by Gbolahan Obisesan)
In a small Nigerian town, unbeknown to their parents, four young brothers decide to go to fishing at a forbidden river. They meet a local madman who utters a terrifying prophecy that one will kill the other. At that moment their destinies change forever. This chance encounter unleashes a spiral of fear which leads to a tragic chain of events of mythic proportions.
Based on the Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel by one of Africa's major new voices, New Perspectives, in association with HOME, presents this powerful allegory of love, vengeance and fate in a new adaptation by award-winning playwright Gbolahan Obisesan.
