Where do you call home? Internationally touring poet, playwright, performer, graphic artist and designer Inua Ellams asks just that in An Evening With An Immigrant. Told through poetry, story and anecdote, this funny, moving and often fantastical story includes his escape from fundamentalist Islam, directing an arts festival at Firhouse Community College, performing solo shows at the National Theatre, and having a drink with the Queen of England. Join our artist in residence for this resonant story about the times we live in.

Presented in association with Fuel. Written and performed by Inua Ellams with music by DJ Sid Mercutio.

'His writing is aromatic. He can recapture the smell of a place, the sense of a moment as well as anyone.'
