Inua Ellams: Plays One
Inua Ellams has established himself as one of the most distinctive voices in British and international theatre. Collected together for the first time are four of Ellams’ acclaimed plays, including The 14th Tale, Untitled, Black T-Shirt Collection and Knight Watch.
‘A sharp reminder of the power of language and rhythm’ The Scotsman on The 14th Tale
‘Ellams’s evocative writing conjures a Nigeria where myth and magic sit casually alongside everyday life.’ The Guardian on Untitled
‘Ellams’ verse brims with magical realism... His delivery is charming and natural, and he is able to spin intricate, rhythmic webs of words with apparent ease. 45 minutes of allowing Inua Ellams to wrap his words around you is far from a painful experience. What is clear is that Ellams’ writing and performance, not to mention his Fringe First award, show that he has definite potential.’ What’s On Stage on Knight Watch
‘Full of arresting images that create a hybrid of lyrical ecstasy and cinematic effects… a fluent, intense 70-minute confection and a tinglingly resonant celebration of the art of solo performance.’ Evening Standard on Black T-Shirt Collection
