The Actorshop Agency is proud to announce a new theatre piece written and directed by Gbolahan Lekan Obisesan.

How Nigeria Became: A Story, and a spear that didn’t work¬†will be showing at the Unicorn Theatre from the 9th October to the 9th November.

It’s 1914, one hundred years ago exactly, and Nigeria is about to be formed. Herbert and his well-known troupe of female actors are preparing to stage a story for the British Governor and his wife.

The story of the Spear of Shango is about a brave young woman who must use her strength and agility to save her father’s kingdom. But there’s a problem, the story doesn’t quite fit with the governor’s vision of a united country…

This production is part of the Black History Month celebrations at The Unicorn Theatre and also commemorates the 100th Birthday of Nigeria.
