    This semi-staged reading will take place at the Almeida, as part of Six Artists in Search of a Play. Inspired by Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, The Gods Are Not To Blame follows Nigerian king Odewale on a rousing journey to discover what is bringing such bad luck to the people of his kingdom, only to find that the answer lies close to home… Considered an allegory of colonialism, Ola Rotimi’s play was first staged in Nigeria at the Festival of the Arts in 1968 and awarded first prize in the African Arts/Arts d'Afrique playwriting contest in 1969.
