Wahala - 'trouble' Ronke, Simi, Boo are three mixed-race friends living in London. They have the special gift of two cultures, Nigerian and English, though they don't all choose to see it like that. Everyday racism has never held them back, but now in their thirties, they look to... the future - Ronke wants a husband (he must be Nigerian); Simi supposedly wants a child (well, her husband does); Boo is frustrated and unfulfilled, but is caught in a whirl of school runs and lustful dreams. When Isobel Babangari, a lethally glamorous friend from their past arrives in town, she is determined to fix their futures for them. As cracks in their friendship begin to appear, it is soon obvious Isobel is not sorting but wrecking. When she is driven to a terrible act, the women are forced to reckon with a crime in their past that may have just repeated itself. A darkly comic and bitingly subversive take on love, race and family, Wahala will have you laughing, crying and gasping in horror. Boldly political about class, colorism and cooking, here is a truly inclusive tale that will speak to anyone who has ever cherished friendship, in all its forms.
