Synopsis

When two brothers from different continents go down the street to buy a pint of milk they lift the lid on a disunited nation where everyone wants to be an individual but no one wants to stand out from the crowd. Bola Agbaje’s comic, astute play about identity, history and culture depicts a world where respect is always demanded but rarely freely given.
