A Unicorn production

It's 1914, one hundred years ago exactly, and Nigeria is about to be formed. Herbert and his well-known troupe of female actors are preparing to stage a story for the British Governor and his wife.

The story of the Spear of Shango is about a brave young woman who must use her strength and agility to save her father's kingdom. But there's a problem, the story doesn't quite fit with the governor's vision of a united country...

This colourful and quick-witted production offers a creative insight into Nigeria's beginnings in 1914.

Written and directed by British Nigerian playwright Gbolahan Obisesan, How Nigeria Became: A Story, and A Spear That Didn't Work commemorates the centenary of Nigeria as part of Black History Month at the Unicorn.
