Dipo Baruwa-Etti

Published by Faber & Faber

0 Male 1 Female

This is bout those men

who stripped him of his crown,

treated that charcoal skin like concrete.

Peace will only come

when I make em come undone

Femi is visited by her brother's ghost

He takes her into the past, revealing the final moments before his murder

But with a lack of evidence, and eyewitnesses considered unreliable, Femi is determined to set things right herself

Dipo Baruwa-Etti's The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars explores trauma, rage and the extent one young woman will go in her quest for justice


“Yoruba myth, Greek tragedy, Tarantino-esque revenge fantasy and Shakespeare swirl together in this searingly articulate cry of pain, rage and hope… This debut play is one that stands out: the writing, in verse, is lacerating yet full of grace… drama that transports us deep into the whorl of trauma, and it is genuinely haunting” ~ The Stage

“It is a challenging and staggering play, and a story that leaves me with hope” ~ A Younger Theatre

“This is a blinder” ~ The Evening Standard
