The New Bwana

by Sam Soko

Kenya, 1964. Gaga and Mutia have worked together, doing the same jobs in the same workshop, for years. They've watched many changes in their country and now that Kenya has gained Independence, the possibility of one of them being the boss - the new Bwana - is suddenly and surprisingly in the air. But what would it mean for their friendship? And how much do they really know each other anyway?
Soko Sam's satire on hope and possibility was shortlisted in the 2011 BBC World Service/British Council International Playwriting Competition.

Directed by Femi Elufowoju, jr.
