An Arcola Theatre production on tour in partnership with Rosamunde Hutt and Tribal Soul Arts
New Nigerians asks the question, would you compromise your integrity to achieve your dream?
Set in Nigeria, New Nigerians is a satirical drama that follows the political and personal upheavals of Greatness Ogholi, presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Revolutionary Party. Greatness’s New Nigerians Initiative is failing to produce the results needed to get enough votes to win the next election. He must decide whether to form a coalition with another party and in the process dump his cherished ideals.
New Nigerians exposes the religious, ethnic and social divides that Greatness must negotiate and asks if, which such divisions, Greatness can continue to be ‘a man of integrity’.
