AN award-winning British-African family drama is now on at the Hub Theatre in Southampton as part of Black History Month.

Pandora’s Box, which has had sell-out shows at the Arcola Theatre in London, was nominated for Best New Play for the Off West End Theatre Awards, and is billed as an “exuberant and thought-provoking mix of comedy, tragedy and family drama”.

Set in Lagos, the play centres around a family reunion of three generations meeting for the first time in more than 30 years and reveals the heartbreak behind the difficult choices some parents must make – and the price their children pay.

Author Ade Solanke was nominated for this year’s Nigeria Prize for Literature, Africa's biggest literary award.

Directed by Shade Oladit and co-produced by Jon Harris, it is funded by Arts Council England with additional funding from the Unity Theatre Trust.
