Happy Grey Hair by Chris Wilson is an interesting play about the main characters, Udo, and his grandsons, Eze and Chike. Eze and Chike want to inherit their grandfather's money. They behave badly toward the people around them, including their grandfather. They treat others without respect and they do not listen to anybody. The language they use is also rude and insulting. The story is set in Africa. Ngozi, Uzo, and Hunter lend support to these main characters.
The play is interesting and it showcases two young boys who are arrogant, rude, and highhanded. The language used in the play at times borders on insulting. The conversations between Eze and Chike also exposes their greed and lack of respect for their grandfather. Their dislike for him is also obvious from the lines where they mention to Hunter that they wish he had died instead of their father. These lines from Chike's conversation also show his dislike of his grandpa: 'Are our ancestors sleeping? When will they ever call him to the land of the dead? Why is he not dead by now? I want him out of my life, can’t stand it anymore.'
The book is a lighthearted play. All the characters have been portrayed well, giving them equal footage in the play. Anyone expecting to gain knowledge about African traditions and art will be disappointed after reading the book. The only connection the story has with Africa is that it has an African background.
