Revue of THE HERBERT MACAULAY AFFAIR

The Herbert Macaulay Affair is a historical period piece set in 1892 and is about Herbert Macaulay who has just returned from his study in England to take up a civil service job as a surveyor in the Lagos Colony of what is now Nigeria. At his job he is exposed to a lot of racism and belittling of the locals by the colonial masters and this angers him sufficiently to lead a rebellion against the colonialists.
