Ola Rotimi’s THE GODS ARE NOT TO BLAME in London (Stage Play) (Sun, 26 to Thursday, 30 April)
Ola Rotimi’s classic THE GODS ARE NOT TO BLAME is coming to London. Many who passed through the Nigerian educational system will be familiar with the book, which is a must read for many secondary school in the country.
The play written by Ola Rotimi and first published in 1971 is the tragic story of a prince who grew up to kill his father and marry his mother. An adaptation of the Greek classic Oedipus Rex, the story centres on Odewale, who is lured into a false sense of security, only to somehow get caught up in a somewhat consanguineous trail of events.
The stage play in London which will run everyday at 8pm is to be directed by Lookman Sanusi and produced by Ayo Jaiyesimi. Dejumo Lewis, Moji Bamtefa, Toyin Oshinaike, Olarotimi Fakunle and Segun Ogunfidodo, make up the cast amongst others.
