Inua Ellams: An Evening with an Immigrant
Mon 20 Nov / Quarterhouse
Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, this is a ridiculous, fantastic, poignant immigrant-story of escaping fundamentalist Islam, performing solo shows at the National Theatre and drinking wine with the Queen, all the while without a country to belong to or a place to call home.
