Published 17-10-2002 by Methuen Publishing

King Baabu: (A Play In The Manner Roughly Of Alfred Jarry) A naked satire on the rule of General Abacha in Nigeria, the play chronicles the debauched rule of General Basha Bash who takes power in a coup and exchanges his general's uniform for a robe and crown re-christening himself King Babu. In the manner of Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi, Soyinka develops a special childish language for his cast of characters who have names like Potipoo and General Uzi. Weaving together burlesque comedy, theatrical excess and storytelling, King Babu has already been coind as a pet name for Africa's despot par excellence Robert Mugabe.
