An Evil Meal of Evil is a play about greed and its consequences. Set in the traditional African village of ‘Ntisong’, the play exposes the complexities of unravelling the issue of Death. Sunyin, the young wife of Dohbani epitomizes what is wrong with coerced marriages. A group of blood thirsty vampires popularly known in the village as members of ‘Nda Saah’ superstitiously kill targeted individuals purposely to enrich themselves. Sunyin, the protagonist in the play suffers from a premature widowhood simply because her father Njukebim forced her into marrying Dohbani. As the play unravels with the culprit of ‘Nda Saah’ brought to justice, questions still linger about the fate of ‘Ntisong’. This play examines the advantages and disadvantages of ‘black art’ mysticism in Africa.
