Resurrections is set in Bandele's homeland, Nigeria. Subversive and satirical drama takes us into a world where shady drug dealers and corrupt lawyers operating within a Byzantine legal system are visited by their ancestral ghosts. "This is Kafka on speed," says one of the spirits, trying to make sense of it all. Resurrections received an LWT 'Plays on Stage' award in 1993

"Bandele is an extraordinarily talented writer who needs no special pleading. Resurrections is a work which resonates with ideas about history and heroism... Resurrections is a visual and verbal treat from a gifted writer...better than Kafka" ~ Louise Doughty, The Mail on Sunday

"He has a poetic imagination for the telling phrase and potent image" ~ Jeremy Kingston, The Times

"The fact is that Bandele-Thomas is an astounding storyteller...he possesses a fantastic ear for individual phrases, and an enviably fertile imagination through which his narratives twine..." ~ Ian Shuttleworth, Financial Times
