Inua Ellams & Fuel present ‘An Evening with an Immigrant’View Event on Facebook
June 21, 2017 - 8:00 pm till 9:30 pm
A ridiculous & fantastic immigrant-story
Award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams, born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother in what is now considered to be Boko Haram territory, left Nigeria for England in 1996 aged 12.
Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, Inua tells his ridiculous, fantastic, poignant immigrant-story of escaping fundamentalist Islam, finding friendship in Dublin, performing solo at the National Theatre, and drinking wine with the Queen of England, all the while without a country to belong to or a place to call home.
