Review this show

Overview

After a sold-out first run and UK tour, The Fishermen transfers to Arcola Studio 1.

In a small Nigerian town, Ben and Obembe slip away to fish at a forbidden river. They continue unnoticed and carefree – until one day the prophecy of a madman changes the course of their lives forever.

Based on the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted novel by one of Africa’s major new voices, Chigozie Obioma, this powerful allegory of brotherhood, vengeance and fate arrives in a new stage adaptation by award-winning playwright Gbolahan Obisesan.

Critic reviews

Difficult to watch and will be equally difficult to forget, as movement, lighting, acting and direction have melded together to create something rare in its tragic beauty

A Younger Theatre

Tragic tale of what it truly means to come of age

· Evening Standard

Turbo-charged two-hander stage version of Chigozie Obioma's Booker-nominated novel of Nigerian childhood

· Time Out

The Fishermen is undoubtedly an extraordinarily crafted piece of theatre
