What is The High Table play about?
The High Table is a family drama that takes place on earth and in the heavens. The story centres on a Nigerian wedding between lesbian couple Tara and Leah that is riddled with tension from Tara's conservative and unaccepting African parents. As Tara's deceased ancestors look down upon the debacle from heaven, will her parents eventually warm up to the idea of gay love and give Leah and Tara their blessing?
