Anatomy Of a Woman- What does a woman, any woman really want? Money, a house, cars, a good husband and children? The writer walks the female mind and humorously investigates gender realtions. The play was first performed at the Muson Centre in March of 2007and starred Stella Damasus in the premiere.

The Inheritors- Where there's a will, there are relatives. One matriarch, her family and her impending death. When greed sits on the human mind, it takes the whole seat. First performed at the Muson Centre in December 2003 starring Taiwo Ajai-Lycett, it was again presented in August of 2006, featuring the stage and tv actor, Joke Silva.

The Other Side- North America and the whole of Europe have crumbling economies and despotic governments. Africa is the land of plenty and Lagos, its most attractive city. Darren Campbell, a white caucasian, born and bred in the United Kingdom, comes to Lagos in search of a better life. This play featured Kate Henshaw-Nuttall in its October 2005 performance.

Gbanja Roulette- 2 flatmates, their relatives and the impact of promiscuity on close friendships. One of the most performed modern plays in Nigeria, it tells of the game of chance that follows sexual indiscretion.
