Going to see “Belong” by Bola Agbaje

Belong by Bola Agbaje

Supporters keh. Forget this country. How many year have you lived here?… Your English is better than the Queen’s and they still call you…

I’m looking forward to my upcoming theatre date with bloggers @IamIola and @IamNicholeBlack. We are heading to the Royal Court Theatre to see the new play by Bola Agbaje, writer of the award-winning “Gone Too Far” amongst others. A co-production with Tiata Fahodzi,

“Belong” is a satirical play that questions our notion of home, a theme that I am very interested in.

The main character Kayode played by Lucian Msamati, is a British MP, who following a controversial defeat at the polls, returns to Nigeria and enters a political battle that makes him question what he believes and where he truly belongs. Sound familiar??


Belong runs at Royal Court Theatre from 26th April to 26th May.
