Abstract 

This study is a seminal work on the selected plays. It adopts a close reading of the plays to 

examine the themes of multiculturalism and cultural diversity as aesthetic platforms used 

individually by the authors to interrogate the roles of ethnic and cultural sentiments in 

the underdevelopment of the Nigerian nation and how these sentiments continue to 

challenge efforts at national integration. This paper takes a close look at the creative 

ingenuity of the authors in terms of their ability to reveal the core of the problem without 

sacrificing literary objectivity. It compares the two plays with some other plays with 

similar themes, recognizing their uniqueness, and concludes by identifying the dramatic 

form as a veritable medium for multicultural communication and education. This study 

encourages more dramatic creations on cultural diversity and national integration, 

especially at the present time when the corporate existence of Nigeria and ethnic 

agitations for self-determination are in the front burner. 

Keywords: Multiculturalism, Nigerian Drama, Cultural Diversity, National 

Integration.
