The Hounding of David Oluwale archiveMay 1969 and the body of David Oluwale is pulled from a river. Eighteen months later, the investigation into his death will rip apart the police force, exposing the dark side of the shiny, new city in which he died. An optimistic, ambitious immigrant from Nigeria, David Oluwale was a showman who loved to dance, but who became the destitute victim of police brutality. Oladipo Agboluaje's sensitive adaptation picks through the many accounts of Oluwale to reveal a chilling and resonant story of persecution and prejudice. Adapted from Kester Aspden's critically acclaimed book, this timely, gripping play unravels the mystery of Oluwale's life and violent death. Part of the Eclipse Theatre initiative.
