The Burial by Bola Agbaje at Albany Theatre
StoneCrabs Theatre Company presents The Burial, by Bola Agbaje, at the Albany Theatre, in Deptford, south London, from 2 to 11 May 2013.
Directed by Franko Figueiredo, designs & costumes by Richard Andrzejewski, lighting by Derek Carlyle, sound by Dinah Mullen.
A satire which explores how the conflicting traditions and religious tensions of one family reveal an unlikely respect for their Nigerian and British-Nigerian cultures. Funmi has it all: a career, doting husband and a comfortable life in London… until the day her father dies and his two Nigerian wives arrive in a flurry of designer shoes and polished fingernails to clash over his burial arrangements. Born a Muslim, married a Christian and with new-found Buddhist beliefs, Funmi is forced to confront the past and her own faith to end the war over her father’s body.
