Wedlock of the Gods

September 29–October  2, 2022


Religious traditions are broken when a young woman defies the law of the land by reconnecting with her true love following the death of her much older betrothed husband. Full of drama, intensity and suspense, West Africa’s first female playwright, Dr. Zulu Sofola, sets William Shakespeare’s beloved classic Romeo and Juliet in Nigeria during the nineteenth century.
