"Dark Times Are Over? satirizes the decay in the university system and the larger society: prostitution, cultism, religious zealotry and injustice." "An indecently dressed young lady, Beatrice, is raped by cultists led by Yepa 1 and Yepa 2. They are arrested but only Yepa 1 is brought to court for trial, because the presiding judge is the auntie of Yepa 2. The lady judge bribes the police to have her nephew released. The interrogation of this act by the playwright leads to a change in the social system." "The play is a sad commentary on the social, political and legal systems of the Nigerian society."--BOOK JACKET.
