9780413732606: Soyinka Plays: 2: A Play of Giants; From Zia with Love; A Scourge of Hyacinths; The Beatification of Area Boy (Contemporary Dramatists)

'Unquestionably Africa's most versatile writer and arguably one of her finest' - New York Times Book Review

A Play of Giants is a savage satire on some of the best-known dictators of our time (including Idi Amin); it brings together a group of dictatorial African leaders at bay in an embassy in New York attempting to make decisions together. Its theatrical predecessors include: Genet's The Balcony and Brecht's Arturo Ui.

From Zia with Love and A Scourge of Hyacinths; When the Military decrees that a crime carrying a prison sentence now retroactively warrants summary execution, confusion and fear permeate a society where the brutality and injustice of military rule is parodied by life inside prison - based on events in Nigeria in the early 1980s Wole Soyinka's stage play From Zia with Love and radio play A Scourge of Hyacinths, were produced in the early 90s.
