Friday 5 and Saturday 6 October 2018

Neville Studio - Tickets £14 (£12 concessions)

Age 16+ - 1 hour 40 minutes (no interval)


Nigeria: ‘the Giant of Africa’. Conservatives rule over the biggest economy on the continent, and one of the largest and youngest populations in the world. What if the people wanted something different? What if they got it?

A sparkling satire on the state of populism in our politics, New Nigerians is the smash-hit new comedy from Oladipo Agboluaje (winner of the Alfred Fagon award for playwriting).

Following a sold-out run at London’s Arcola Theatre, Rosamunde Hutt’s side-splitting production arrives in Nottingham for three performances only.

As time runs out to build a coalition, can Greatness Ogholi win power without losing his integrity? Could this the beginning of a new Nigeria?

★★★★ “Suffused with warmth, hopefulness and humour, New Nigerians is no ordinary political satire.” – The Stage

“Packed with killer lines and comic characters” – Exeunt

Please note: This production contains strong language, scenes of a sexual nature, smoking and drug use

Post Show Q&A – Friday 5 October
