Reap What You Sow

A Play for Children

by George Njimele

Reap What You Sow is a tragicomic play that focuses on issues surrounding Mr and Mrs Batou’s family. The work presents the worries of this couple, especially Mrs Batou’s preoccupations with the upbringing of her children with a blend of humour and tragic events. Despite her complaints and warnings, Micara (her elderly daughter) ends up with an unwanted pregnancy.
Njimele’s success in this must-read drama lies largely in his ability to use a relevant artistic touch to present Cameroon’s contemporary society with its numerous ups and downs. He uses satire to highlight some of the burning ills that plague the society.
