Description

The Marriage of Anansewa Adapting the conventions of Akan story-telling, Efua Sutherland has succeeded brilliantly in producing a sparkling and hilarious play.Ananse’s beautiful daughter, Anansewa, is his most valuable asset – if he can persuade one of the country’s chiefs to marry her. But what if Anansewa doesn’t love the chief? A small problem compared to what will happen if all the chiefs decide they want to marry Anansewa!Part farce, part serious social comment The Marriage of Anansewa is a fast-moving story of greed and cunning – with just a hint of youthful romance. Edufa is an honourable man – but what price has he paid for his wealth and position? In this sombre exploration of the dark side of ambition, Efua Sutherland gives a West African twist to Faust’s pact with the Devil.
