Chigozie Obioma’s Booker Prize-nominated novel about vengeance and fate in a small Nigerian town transfers to the West End


Gbolahan Obisesan has adapted the story of four brothers torn apart by a prophecy. In a small Nigerian town, Ben and Obembe slip away to fish at a forbidden river along with their two older brothers. Risking the wrath of their father, who expects great things of them all, they continue
unnoticed and carefree until one day the prophecy of a madman changes the course of their lives. Based on the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted novel by one of Africa's major new voices, New Perspectives present Chigozie
Obioma's powerful allegory of brotherhood, vengeance and fate.
