The Burial by Bola Agbaje
Funmi has it all: a career, doting husband and a comfortable life in London... until the day her father dies and his two Nigerian wives arrive in a flurry of designer shoes and polished fingernails to clash over his burial arrangements.
A lively new satire by award-winning playwright Bola Agbaje, which explores how the conflicting traditions of one family reveal an unlikely respect for their Nigerian and British-Nigerian cultures.
