    Great Mother - Iya Ayaba
    By Mojola Akinyemi

    19:00, Tue 2nd – Sat 6th November 2021 at Corpus Playroom
    Michaelmas Week 4

    In the late 1960s, towards the end of the Biafran War in Nigeria, Agnes, a novitiate nun, experiences a complete nervous breakdown. Her path crosses with Taiwo, a photojournalist reporting on the brutality of the conflict, who quickly forms an attachment to her. After Agnes is largely shut away from human contact, he becomes her confidant, uncovering the malevolent reasons behind her mental deterioration, and the secrets of the convent she belongs to.

    This is a play on turmoil, both internal and external, and the difficult choices people are forced to make for survival.
