Rock of God centres on a significant war that Nso fought with
Bamoun in the 1880s, and which war resulted in a devastating defeat
for the Bamouns. During this war, a major Nso combat rule was
broken: the Sultan (king) of Bamoun was decapitated. Both local
story tellers and historians have indicated that the Sultan was
only supposed to be captured alive. The play explores some very
compelling reasons for this violation. It mocks any attempt at
categorization because the events involved are as historically
relevant as they are anthropologically profound; as literarily
dense as they are linguistically compelling. It surely stands on
its own because it clearly combines concepts of docu-drama,
morality play, classical theatre, historical drama, and much more.
But beyond all else, it is great artistry that demonstrates the
genius of experimentation.
