Thank you so much for posting about this article. Soyinka is a favorite playwright of mine. Have you ever read any of his plays? He has a haunting, anti-colonialist voice which seeks to bring justice and understanding to his world.

My introduction to Soyinka was through the poem 'Telephone Conversation' when I was a teen. Brilliant even now. No not really looked at the plays. I want to read Interpreters again now...
