The five plays collected here showcase the diverse scope and content of Adebayo’s playwriting and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to an artistic practice that is both stylistically innovative and politically astute.

Asara and the Sea-Monstress — drawing on folk tales from both Nigeria and Scandinvai, this play for young people is about a left-handed girl growing up in a mythical right-handed kingdom.
Oranges and Stones — exploring one woman’s life under occupation in Palestine.
The Interrogation of Sandra Bland — a verbatim play transposing the dash-cam recording of Sandra Bland’s arrest to a choral performance about police brutality.
