“You have to destroy the old monolith to create something new.”


Nigeria: ‘the Giant of Africa’. Conservatives rule over the biggest economy on the continent, and one of the largest and youngest populations in the world. What if the people wanted something different? What if they got it?

Hackney-born writer Oladipo Agboluaje (winner of the Alfred Fagon award for Iya Ile/The First Wife) and director Rosamunde Hutt (Love, Bombs and Apples) weave a gripping tale of conflict and compromise, setting the scene for a political revolution in 21st century Nigeria.

As time runs out to build a coalition which can challenge the ruling party, can progressive forces overcome their personal and political differences, or will their troubled pasts define an even more troubling future?
