ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on an August 2007 production of the play "In the Chest of a Woman," by Efo Kodjo Mawugbe, in Accra, Ghana. It offers an analysis of the play in the context of the author's claims that it is a celebration of women. The author argues that the play may be read as such in spite of some contradictions in the presentation of its female characters, and suggests that the author's reluctance to identify himself fully with feminism may play a role in these contradictions.
