The theme of the drama would be REDEMPTION. It attempts to establish, in two stories, the large possibility of redemption for even the most wayward of individuals.

On the other hand, it also addresses cases of ‘buried pasts’ in the sense that it takes the audience on a journey to the past with the protagonist in search of closure – for the character and the audience at large.

The play, while it tries to hold on to its genre of action for as long as possible before hitting a tragedy, also tries to bring together – in one single plot – the trials of individuals still entangled in what they would later come to refer to as their ‘past lives’ and those individuals who have moved on in a manner of speaking, but are yet to negotiate in clear terms of an agreement between themselves, the present and their exhuming past.

Set in modern-day Nigeria, the writer subtly addresses some common prevalent instances in this west African country while also infusing a few words from the native language of Yoruba into the dialogues.
