The Candles

ISBN 978-0-9568101-6-8



The Candles is a socio-political satire of the dark kind that explores various layers of problems in Africa captured in a moment of political turbulence under a military regime.


The mental and physical actions of the key characters in this play are fueled by paranoia and illogicality. Through the use of the metaphor of darkness and flickering flames as the backdrop for The Candles, Nwaozuzu powerfully projects an ailing society thirsting for light.
