From the Womb of Time: African Dramatic Trilogy

From the Womb of Time: African Dramatic Trilogy

ByTemienor Tuedon

On the whole, the trilogy From the Womb of Time is a dramatic rendition of a story of fate, showing how man plots his own destiny from generation to generation. From a grand odyssey and sublime self-conquest and embrace of peace in the first play, Ekpen – Tiger in the Swamps, the playwright picks up the knotty, dirty thread of a child spawned in lust during the build-up to peace in this play and weaves it into a character befitting its ignoble origin in the person of Oyinbo in the next play, I am Royalty. This character metamorphoses into Eve in the third and final play, A Cock and Hen Story) where with her partner from time, they typify man’s decline and journey into decadence – from the fringes of royalty to the “expulsion from paradise” and their eventual re-emergence in their solitary world of anomie in A Cock and Hen Story.
