Abstract:The author examines mono-dramatic theatre performances in Burkina Faso, discussing the tendancy of mono-drama to be confessional or reflective, more than is possible or realised in traditional drama formats. She analyses works of the Ivorian playwright Koffi Kwahulé ('Village fou ou les déconnards' and 'Jaz') and of Burkinabè playwright Aristide Tarnagda ('Terre rouge' and 'Et si je les tuais tous madame'), looking at both the performance and the reception of these productions.
