A play about love, passion, rituals and death. Wedlock of the Gods is a tragedy which finds its roots in the rituals of death and mourning. A girl was bundled off to marriage because her parents needed money from her bridewealth to pay medical bills for her sick brother. She considers herself as been in bondage for three years the marriage lasted, then the husband dies. Rather than wait for three months as stipulated by custom or agree to the obnoxious custom of leviration, she becomes pregnant for her earstwhile lover. Custom is broken, the consequences are severe……the plot thickens as the tragedy unfolds.
