This work is a study of Nigerian drama from the eve of independence to the 1980s with supportive materials from Nigeria's socio-political history. It examines the appropriateness and usage of the term "Nigerian Drama" and sets limits on its meaning. It also looks at what influences the Negritude movement and independence had on Nigerian drama, and why it is important to study Nigerian drama of socio-political concern. It examines pre-Colonial Nigeria, the style of politics and electioneering that marked the first Republic, the Marxist phenomenon in drama, the effects of the civil war, and the drama that resulted. It includes play synopses, and biographies of playwrights.
