The late Dr. Tai Solarin was the Principle and Proprietor of the Mayflower Grammar School at Ikenne, and Public Complaints Commissioner of the former Western State of Nigeria. This play by Femi Osofisan, the distinguished Nigerian playwright, is in his honour. Isola, a rascally and irresponsible traveller, is mistaken for the dreaded Public Complaints Commissioner, Solarin, by the corrupt officials of the Local Government Council. He plays on this until the real Commissioner arrives. The classic play was first published in 1978; and this new edition includes the first Tai Solarin Memorial Lecture, delivered in 2004 by Femi Osofisan.
