The Gods Are Not To Blame

In this play 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 expiated before his kingdom can be restored to health is unfolded with a dramatic intensity heightened by the richness of play's Nigerian setting.

The gods are not to blame, which had its first Performance in Nigeria at the Ife Festival of the Arts in 1968, has since been staged with great success in other west African countries. It was awarded the first prize in the African Arts, Arts d'afrique, playwriting contest in 1968.
