About the Author:

Bola Agbaje is a young writer in whose first play, Gone Too Far!, she explores the experience of young Nigerians living in London.

Review:

Agbaje has an astute eye and ear and offers a different perspective to her male counterparts Guardian, 29/07/08 In her remarkable debut as a playwright Bola Agbaje walks two teenage black brothers around a dilapidated London council estate. She exploits their close encounters to give us a jolting lesson about the range of identities, beliefs and anxieties concealed beneath black or blackish skins. Evening Standard 29/07/08 a sparky, hugely promising and entertaining all-rounder Time Out London 07/08/08 Although this is a very familiar sociological cityscape, Agbaje writes about it with a freshness and energy that is verbally delightful, along with a clarity of observation that feels both mature and insightful. Tribune 08/08/08
