Woes of the Wolves

A play

by Wellington Nwogu

"With this fascinating treatise, Woes of the Wolves, aesthetically woven for the delight of all literary enthusiasts; Wellington Nwogu artistically replicates dozens of rampant diverse abysmal quandaries in his homeland as perpetrated by the metaphoric 'wolves'...This presents Nwogu as an unswerving writer whose writings bother so much on social decadences and more."

- Prof. Ozo-mekuri Ndimele, Former Vice Chancellor, Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Port Harcourt.

"In this literary masterpiece, entitled, Woes of the Wolves, Nwogu effectively wields and reflects realities as he fights against the bane of corruption, impiety, greed and bad influences for the betterment of our society?"

- BM Dzukogi, Former National Secretary,Association of Nigerian Authors.

"There is something Kafkaesque about the creative works of Wellington Nwogu, especially with the prevailing circumstances surrounding his home country, Nigeria. His writings bring to the fore, different disturbing issues of humanity: issues, such as ravenous and wicked acts of people, among others as epitomized in his Woes of the Wolves, a profound play, written in a more creative manner."

- Chi NDù EfóGò, Author, Oh Son of Dust, Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

"Woes of the Woes is a classical and theatrical embodiment of the travails of the perpetually impoverished majority, and the minority (the so-called leaders), who continue to lavish on the frailties of the led. Wellington captures this epic reality in a lucid dramatisation of actions and consequences. Nature is indeed unbeatable!"

- Dr. Ebidenyefa Tarila-Nikade, Author, Vulnerable Chronicles.
