Madam Tinubu: The Terror in Lagos
Directed by Wole Soyinka, this play was the 1979 convocation play of the then University of Ife. This is the first time it has been published in book form. The story presents a unique glimpse into the social and political powers of an important African woman who was strong enough to engage the colonial authorities, the indulgent African elite and the consenting traditional ruler. The ideological and moral battle is about the destiny of Africans in their own country, and the role of women in African societies.
