This book is a collection of three Christian plays entitled “Another Chance”, “Too Late”, and “A Little Slumber”. The plays deal with the certainty of judgement after death, the need to accept Christ before it is too late and the need to remain faithful in all we are called to do.
Self made businessman, Benson Osaro Ojeaga is involved in a road accident on the outskirts of Ile Imole. He is relieved when the villagers come to his rescue, but soon discovers that things are not really what they seem. As events unfold, he comes to terms with the fact that he has lived a life of misplaced priorities and desires another chance at life to right his many wrongs. However, like most people, he realises too late that he has only one life to live and thereafter will face the fearful prospect of judgement.
Another Chance is a striking and very upbeat play for all seasons that clearly depicts the need for everyone to seek the Lord while he can still be found. It is a call as well as a reminder to Christians and non-Christians alike that life in the hereafter is contingent on the quality of life in the present.
