The last two decades saw an unprecedented upsurge of interest in African drama and theatre, as African playwrights bore witness to the strivings of African people as they challenged the vices that continued to plague the continent, including neo-colonialism, dictatorship, corruption, nepotism, inter-ethnic conflicts, poverty, gender inequality and HIV/AIDS. These essays emphasise the organic continuity within the African literary tradition, between the pre-colonial and post-colonial forms of drama, and is a valuable resource for general readers and students alike.
