Finding Adaora is a play by Roli Ukwu and Segun Michaels, about a conflicted Caribbean woman who comes to Nigeria in search of identity, only to find that skin colour is not the first or most important classification of human affinity. Her unique encounters at the hands of her Nigerian driver, Udoka, and his spurious side-kick, Emem, force her to rethink her values and the meaning of being African. When she chooses to change her name and adopt Nigeria as her home, she gets more than she bargained for! This new Nigerian writing shines a light on the importance of unity within our inter-ethnic relations as well as the strength of our ‘Nigerianness’.
