Natalie Simpson gives a dynamic performance of Wahala, Nikki May’s fast-paced drama about a trio of Anglo-Nigerian friends in London. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this story of three women whose lives are disrupted by a new friend, Isobel, and Simpson’s skill at conveying the emotion and intensity of the story. She skillfully switches among British, Nigerian, and French accents, smoothly shifting between perspectives as trouble arises and all of their relationships are at risk.
