This is verse drama of epic proportions draped in iambic pentameter with echoes of Greek drama, commingled with entry and exit points of an omniscient narrator. In this experimental theatre, the author succeeds in an interesting innovation that merges lofty versification with straight-forward prose and histrionics such that interesting elements of Modern Theatre are brought together in an innovative way. Patrons and students of the theatre would find thought-provoking ideas of experimentation to grapple with in The Ashanti Prince. In the end the power play shifts towards a dichotomy of ethics and aesthetics.
