SEARCH PARTY: SHEDINBURGH REPLAY

EVENT INFORMATION

SEARCH PARTY 

Written and performed by Inua Ellams

Award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams (BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES, THE HALF-GOD OF RAINFALL, THREE SISTERS) brings his special, audience-led poetry event to Shedinburgh. 

Pick a word, any word. Prompted by audience suggestions, Inua Ellams searches through his extensive archive of work and perform a reactive and spontaneous selection.

Inua Ellams’ first play, THE 14TH TALE, won a Fringe First before transferring to London’s National Theatre and touring nationally and internationally. He was awarded the Liberty Human Rights Award for his one-man show, AN EVENING WITH AN IMMIGRANT, and THE BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES played to 46,000 at the Roundhouse after two sell-out runs at the National Theatre and a world tour. Across his work, Inua mixes the old with the new: traditional African storytelling with contemporary poetry, with an emphasis on themes of identity, displacement and destiny.

Running Time: 1hr 

Age Guidance: 12+
