Compare Report Abuse

The theme of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex is skillfully transplanted to African soil. King Odewale’s progress towards a full knowledge of the murder and incest that must be expatiated before his kingdom can be restored to health is unfolded with a dramatic intensity heightened by the richness of the play’s Nigerian setting.
The Gods are not to blame was first performed in Nigeria at the Ife Festival of the Arts in 1968, has since been staged with great success across Africa Europe and the USA
