A Little Chilli

Drama Short

Three generations of Nigerian women in Ireland. EDUGIE (60s), the grandmother, who grew up in Nigeria. ADESUWA (40s), the mother, who moved to Ireland as child. ISOKEN (18), the daughter, who was born and raised in Ireland. All with slightly different perspectives and unspoken expectations of each other.

Edugie is planning a move back to Nigeria. Isoken is preparing to start University. In her determination to honour her late husband, Adesuwa forgets about herself.

A story about motherhood and connection. About How we choose to honour and remember those who are no longer with us – and those who still are. Food, and the rituals that unite us.
