“With hard work and perseverance, Okonkwo became a respected person among his people. However, things took an unfortunate turn for Okonkwo; from a hero, he became the spite of Umuofia and was buried like a dog.
What could have led to this turn of fate? OKONKWO’S INQUEST is a stage play inspired by Chinua Achebe’s classic novel “THINGS FALL APART”. The play intends to rationalize human reactions to strange cultures and dogmas through a post mortem on the fatal consequences of colonial assumptions of the African traditional structure.
