A fast and funny family drama about intergenerational and cross-cultural relationships - containing plenty of spicy bits... It's the anniversary of John Anyia's death, and the Anyias are packing their suitcases, preparing to head home to Nigeria for a memorial service in his honour. But before they go, they're going to have to get rid of some excess baggage. Janice Okoh's play Egusi Soup was first performed as a script-in-hand performance at Menagerie Theatre Company's Hotbed Festival in July 2009 and, in October 2009, embarked on tour in a co-production with Eastern Angles. It was revived in 2012 in a co-production between Menagerie and Soho Theatre, in association with the Mercury Theatre, Colchester.
