As the Anyias, a British-Nigerian family, pack their suitcases and prepare to head home to Lagos for a memorial service in honour of the late Mr Anyia, they soon realise they will need to get rid of some excess baggage first!
A fast, furious and funny new family drama about inter-generational and cross-cultural relationships.
Janice Okoh is an award winning playwright. Her play Three Birds won the 2011 Bruntwood Prize and was short-listed for the Verity Bargate Award and the Alfred Fagon Award.
