Sixtus Chetachi Igbokwe
Since the head of a great man does not end in the soil of a foreign land, the critically ill Professor of Dramatic Studies in Iowa, United States, Professor Ojemba Enwilo returns to Nigeria to plan his own funeral and set up quick memorable legacies in the arts. He reunites with his long-separated brother, Ndaa Okenta, and together they plan to outwit and batter the monster called Death. Set in one day, Brother-Brother explores man’s age-long efforts to navigate the heart-wrenching problem of death.
This play includes violence, strong language, and discussions of suicide and death.
