I started writing this play after seeing these two photographs taken in Nigeria (one in the 1970s and one in 1959). One is of a group of Yoruba women on their way to market; they carry large gourds of ingredients on their heads. The second photograph is of a group of Gwari people carrying baskets of firewood against their necks, on their way to market as well. by a quiet sea imagines the journey, imagines who these people might be, then, now, in a future world and the past.It is The Road, The Runners, The Twins, Third Twin, Stage Manager, Sound Man. Once. And Death. Speaking English, French, Portuguese, Kreyol, Spanish and Yoruba. And where they meet is the place where Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Brazil and Nigeria come together. A map of return and the future.
