Book Description
This volume contains two short plays about Brother Jeroboam, the rather less than holy West African "beach divine." In the first play, The Trials of Brother Jero, the charlatan preacher, burdened by a cross "daughter of Eve," uses Christian superstition for his own salvation. In the sequel, Jero's Metamorphosis, the profit-minded "prophet" thwarts a government attempt to cleanse the beach of all the dubious brethren who ply their trade there.
