I enjoyed reading this book as much as watching the play - where plays are concerned one should always do both, it doesn't matter which comes first in my opinion. This play's major themes are of the Yoruba's (a Nigerian tribe) understandings of death and spirit, and looks at colonial intervention in other cultures.
