Dipo Agboluaje & Penny Hancock

nigeria_brecher

Dipo Agboluaje explores the effects of later boyhood in Nigeria, and Penny Hancock wonders whether she has a real job. Dipo Agboluaje explains how migrating from London to his family’s homeland of Nigeria as a young boy shaped his interest in playwriting, with inspiration along the way from diverse mythologies. Penny Hancock wonders when it’s legitimate, if your professional occupation leaves you free to manage your own time and involves an activity other people do simply for pleasure, to say that writing is your career?
