Further Informationnt / 1267 / Previews from 20 January 2005. / Akinyele Bobagunwa (Akin), his wife Akumma Obinna Bobagunwa (Aku) and their three children are living in New York City in a town house in the East 90s. This posh arrangement is the result of Akin's appointment as Ambassador from Nigeria to the United Nations and Aku couldn't be more delighted with these circumstances. Aku is childishly innocent, protected from responsibility and all worldly affairs, first by her father and now by her husband. When she expresses her joy to her college friend Ijeudo Chidike (Ije), Aku is reminded of a time when her life was bitter, impoverished and she was forced to take desperate measures. Those “desperate measures” included a shady businessman, Obadele Rhinehart, who is now on her husband's staff in the United Nations mission. / Based on Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, the play has been adapted to a new setting and a new century with strong African influences, but still carries the same emotional impact as its predecessor.
