The Palm Wine Drinkard


This classic novel tells the phantasmagorical story of an alcoholic man and his search for his dead palm-wine tapster. As he travels through the land of the dead, he encounters a host of supernatural and often terrifying beings - among them the complete gentleman who returns his body parts to their owners and the insatiable hungry-creature. Mixing Yoruba folktales with what T. S. Eliot described as a 'creepy crawly imagination', The Palm-Wine Drinkard is regarded as the seminal work of African literature. "Brief, thronged, grisly and bewitching." (Dylan Thomas, Observer). "Tutuola's art conceals - or rather clothes - his purpose, as all good art must do." (Chinua Achebe).

Petra will have to work with the other Dragon Masters to save him before it's too late! Every chapter includes stills, lighting diagrams and key advice from professionals in the field, as well as lighting exercises to help the reader put into practice what was covered.
