There are three characters – Ogun, responsible older brother, Oshooshi, his recently out of jail younger brother and Elegba, his friend, recently out of jail.
There are four people on show during this play – the three characters and a drummer. It's a play of rhythm and movement. Characters speak the stage directions – a style that only took a little while to get used to. The rhythms are not just given by the drums
Having the three characters on show gives a different atmosphere depending on who is not 'on stage'.
It's full of atmosphere. Menacing, foreboding, funny, heartbreaking.
