Leading Nigerian movie and theatre director, Bolanle Austen Peters, has released a teaser for her latest work, a remake of Death and the King’s Horseman.
In what has been described as the most gripping interpretation of Wole Soyinka’s play, BAP drove the story home with a strong infusion of colour and passion.
Death and the King’s Horseman is Soyinka’s 1975 play based on a real incident that took place in Nigeria during the colonial era – after the horseman of a Yoruba King was prevented from committing ritual suicide by the colonial authorities.
BAP’s adaptation is set to hit theatres soon.
