Marching for Fausa was premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1993 and deals with political corruption in the Federal Republic of Songhai, a fictional country on the west coast of Africa. A young journalist and photographer, Telani Balarabe, is investigating the disappearance of a group of schoolchildren, arrested by the State Security Service during a public demonstration

"Marching for Fausa ... is a powerful, conscience stirring portrait of the corruption and brutality within a fictitious African republic ... A powerful play about the evils of dictatorship..." ~ Michael Billington, The Guardian

"[it] crackles with anger and dark laughter. It is a story of terror and corruption in an African state: a journalist investigates a shady cabinet minister with predictable results. It's as if Dario Fo had written a fiery and ferocious political parable. Highly recommended" ~ John Peter, The Sunday Times

"This crude, raw play is full of vitality and idealism, and what it lacks in subtlety and focus is more than replaced by conviction and, most importantly, a strong sense of characterisation" ~ Nicola Venning, What's On
