Overview

“Haven’t we had this conversation before?”

Flatmates Banza and Lagbaja blissfully fritter the hours away regaling each other with nonsensical stories. Today, however, something else is in the air: confusion; déjà vu; fragments of past memories. Who are they? How did they get here? Has this all happened before? The answers to these questions should be simple. But for some reason, for these men, in this room - they aren’t. 

Two Horsemen won Best Play at the London New Plays Festival. Biyi Bandele has been writer-in-residence at the National Theatre, Talawa Theatre and the Bush Theatre. His acclaimed novels, plays and films include Half of a Yellow Sun. Ebenezer Bamgboye is Carne Deputy Director at Jermyn Street Theatre.

“Richly comic. Reminiscent of Beckett and Soyinka ... a thrilling piece of writing.”
