About this book
First ever collection of plays by award-winning Nigerian-American playwright Sefi Atta.
"This is contemporary family drama at its best: jam-packed with complex characters of largely middle class backgrounds; terse, witty dialogues that demonstrate Atta's skills at portraying genders and generations with widely differing aspirations; sibling rivalries, conjugal dynamics and meddling extended families; best friends and bad neighbors; and a whole plethora of religious practices and ethical mores which affect business ventures, professional conduct, and personal relations. This and much more you will find in Atta's Selected Plays- a drama collection which offers thought-provoking entertainment for theatre lovers." — Christine Matzke, University of BayreuthBrand: Sefi Atta
