Jero Plays by Wole Soyinka

'Unquestionably Africa's most versatile writer and arguably one of her finest' - New York Times Book Review

These hilarious and vicious two plays examine the corruption of Nigerian society through a study of the rise and fall of one of its self-made charismatic preachers.'Wole Soyinka's Nobel Prize for Literature is a triumphant affirmation of the universality of this novelist, poet, film-maker and political activist.' - Guardian
