The growth of the solo theatrical sub-genre seems to have been stultified in Nigeria because of the fact that the pioneer soloists (Funsho Alabi and Tunji Sotimirin) did not find it necessary to document their solo performances in print after their production tours. The performance context of their art has created problems for theatre scholars and aspiring solo performers who have no tangible hold on their ephemeral works. In this study, I seek to show both the pattern of development in The Prime Minister’s Son and, to unveil the solo dramatic techniques that facilitated the creat on, production and publication of this work. By studying the improvisational outline and the ultimate text that emerged through rigorous improvisational effort, this reflection will help to provide few lessons for future studies in this area.
