Summary Excerpt Comments

 

 

Udo, the village elder, has been raising his grandsons, Eze and Chike, since their father’s early death. When the boys got their hands on their father’s inheritance, they squandered it, and grew pompous and disrespectful of everyone, especially Udo.

 

As Udo is aging, he is devastated by his grandsons’ lack of respect and caring for anyone. He cannot understand it; his son, their father, was such a good, hardworking man. His hired help, Ngozi, also bears the brunt of the boys’ insults. All she wants to do is help care for Udo, and they belittle her at every turn.

 

Udo visits his best friend, Uzo, and devises a plan to make his grandsons understand the error of their ways. When Udo puts his plan into play, Eze and Chike respond with deceptions of their own.

 

Soon, Udo realizes that he must take extreme measures to save Eze and Chike from their own greed and arrogance. What he does next will certainly change the rest of their lives... but will it work?

 

***

 

Retaining long-held traditions in a rapidly developing region like West Africa has become a problem among youth. Naturally they want progress; but at what cost?

 

After travel and research in six countries across West Africa, the author has developed this play to address the issue from an African perspective.

 

Incorporating West African traditions and sensibilities into a touching play, Happy Grey Hair carries a message for the youth of the region: remember the tradition of respecting elders. After all, you may be the village elder one day yourself.
