Inspired by Nigerian writer Lola Shoneyin’s novel, The Secret Lives of
Baba Segi’s Wives is an endearing and powerful tale of deception,
betrayal, love, and friendship. It chronicles the life of Baba Segi, the
ultimate patriarch, as he tries to unravel the mystery behind his fourth
wife’s infertility. Through his quest, we explore the burdens that
society places on women and the cunning ways these women escape from the
confines of poverty and patriarchy. Be ready to laugh, cry and connect
with five amazing characters, all performed by storyteller Maimouna
Jallow.
