Voices of The Beleaguered is an African traditional play that mirrors the darkest of the society and above all, underscores the negligence of the government towards her citizens. The plights of the bereaved masses, their agonies ,swelled the writing of this book.

The play foreshadows the activities of a handful of street beggars using the north as its central setting as virtually all the characters are northerners, how their deploits led to the growth and development of the plot of the dramatic piece.

ABOUT THE BOOK Like Birago Diop in his poem "vanity", "If we cry roughly of our torment, Ever increasing from the start of things What eyes will watch our large mouths? Shaped by the laughter of big children What eyes will watch our large mouths?" Man is the architect of his own success and failure in life. Our decisions and indecisions either makes or mars us. Did not an adage say that only a fool treads where an angels fear? According to Gbemisola Adeoti in her poem "ambush" "The land lies patiently ahead Awaiting in ambush. Those who point away from a direction. Where nothing happens towards the shores of possibilities". Awwau wondered away from her studies to the shore of possibilities where nothing happens hence that almost cost her, her life and future but for the timely intervention of sango and oya, her true parents. However, little does she know her true identity and gift. The book explores how mythology and mythical creatures are woven into contemporary African tales with the aim of addressing social ills that bedevils most societies. The African play "her shoes because wise" explores a typical university setting and campus experience of an undergraduate and how her single decision fueled by shared laziness and greed landed her into a pitiable condition worth learning from.

This play is the winner of the Beeta Playwright Competition 3. Daughters of the East is a compelling read - relatable story of a situation that resonates for so many women in Nigeria, especially it's eastern parts. I enjoyed reading this and recommend to all.
