Inua Ellams brings his autobiographical solo show back for the Bridge’s monologue season
Nigerian-born poet, performer and playwright Inua Ellams has made it big since he debuted this solo show half a decade ago: he enjoyed a breakthrough success with his National Theatre smash ‘Barber Shop Chronicles’, followed up by his version of Chekhov’s ‘Three Sisters’. But he brings his old solo show back for another round as part of the Bridge’s season of socially-distanced monologues.
Son of a Muslim father and Christian mother from Boko Haram territory, in ‘An Evening with an Immigrant’ he tells the story of how he left Nigeria, found himself in Dublin and how he worked his way to having plays on at the NT and encountering the Queen.
