This is one of the best-known plays by Africa’s major dramatist, Wole Soyinka. It is set in the Yoruba village of Ilunjinle. The main characters are Sidi (the Jewel), ’a true village belle’ and Baroka (the Lion), the crafty and powerful Bale of the village, Lakunle, the young teacher, influenced by western ways, and Sadiku, the eldest of Baroka’s wives. How the Lion hunts the Jewel is the theme of this ribald comedy.
