With Madam Kofo, the wealthy drug-baroness terrorizing her poor tenant & employee, Omesiete, & with her teenage daughter under-cutting her mounting authority, with riveting humor & irony, Onwueme takes the issues of gender politics & class inequality into unexplored territories to project the pitfalls in women's dreams of global sisterhood & equality. For its insights into the womens myths of global sisterhood & equality, Tess Onwueme's SHAKARA is easily one of the most outstanding plays of our time.
