"In the first play, a sensitive, highly principled young man gets "retrenched" by a transnational company he has served for years. Unable to take care of his family, and his sense of self-worth seriously hurt, he resorts to a drastic action. In the second play, a corrupt, decadent politician/businessman nurses a passionate ambition to have his daughter "answer the wedding bell" in the largest and most expensive car in town. Something dramatic happens that thwarts that ambition in the very last moment. These two plays provide a telling commentary on the Nigerian condition."--BOOK JACKET.
