Short Description: ‘Death and The King’s Grey Hair’ examines the use and misuse of absolute power based on an ancient Jukun myth of young kings and short reigns. ‘Truce with the Devil’ is a satire on the later abandonment of the creeds of Marxism by its adherents, a kind of mockery of turncoat revolutionaries in the grip of practical social realities. ‘Fringe Benefits’, a radio play, is an expose of the happenings in our ivory tower, seen from the eyes of a participant-observer.
