The book is a collection of fifteen plays written by Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher, Africa's most politically exposed playwright. This rare collection offers a penetrating insight of corruption and politics in Africa well as the global injustices that plagued the world in the last quarter of the 20th century and in contemporary times. Hagher's unique narrative style is richly inspired by his academic career as Professor of theater and drama and his practical work as actor and director as well as his engagement with the traditional Tiv Kwagh-hir theater. Hagher is master of satire, humor and unending endings. The plays are masterpieces of Hagher's workshop experiences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hagher x-rays with avid passion and commitment in his plays, the essence of social rebirth, and social regeneration. -- Olu Obafemi, PhD, President National Academy of Letters
In this Fifteen Plays, the craft and grit of Prof. Hagher's talent and dramaturgy are for the first time in an extraordinary forty-one year career brought together in one massive frame. The fifteen plays of the collection do not just call us as witnesses to the depth and gift of Hagher's literary penmanship and political activism, they ask us to sit back and enjoy the vast pleasure of an astonishing literary imagination. -- Obiwu, Ph.D, Central State University, Ohio
Iyorwuese Hagher's plays in this collection bear a bold and ingenious stamp of idealism in the interface of drama with popular culture and politics. By incorporating Kwagh-hir symbolism and themes in his plays, Hagher has become an important world literary genre innovator. His plays are characterized by unending endings and subliminal ambiguity. -- Emmanuel Dandaura, PhD, FSONTA, President International Association of Theater Critics, Nigeria
Hagher's plays in this volume capture his dramatic essence as advocate of social justice. His plays express disgust at public corruption, hypocrisy and mendacity. He is master of sublimation where his plays leave the theater and follow the spectator home. They provide common ground between utopia and dystopia. -- Sunny Ododo, PhD, FSONTA, President Society of Nigerian Theater Artists. Chair Department of Theater Arts, University of Maiduguri
