More About the Author

Inua Ellams was born in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria in 1984. He works as an internationally touring poet, playwright and performer. He has seven published books including 'Thirteen Fairy Negro Tales' (Poetry, Flipped Eye: 2005) 'The 14th Tale' (Play, Flipped Eye: 2009) - which was commissioned by the Battersea Arts Centre and awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival, before a sold out run at The National Theatre in London, England. His third theatre piece, 'Black T-Shirt Collection' (Play, Oberon: 2012) also completed a sold out run at the National Theatre in 2012.

His poems have been published in magazines and anthologies including: Generation Txt (Penned in the Margins: 2006), City State (Penned in the Margins: 2009), The Salt Book of Younger Poets (Salt: 2011), The Shuffle Anthology (Shuffle: 2011), Chorus (MTV Books: 2012). Candy Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars (Flipped Eye: 2011) is his second pamphlet of poetry and he is currently working on #Afterhours, his third pamphlet. Working also a graphic designer and visual artist, Inua's work is imbibed with plentiful imagery - the starting point of his poems, and further, he describes the one-man shows he writes and performs as failed 'poems'. Inua Ellams acknowledges that as biographies go, this is essentially a gathered list of achievements that say nothing about his personality, thus, promises he is a nice guy. 'Trust me...' he says '... I'm Nigerian'.

Product Description


Ellams' evocative writing conjures a Nigeria where myth and magic sit casually alongside everyday life. --The Guardian (on Untitled)

The show alights like an elegant butterfly on a great many issues, including homophobia, sectarianism and the demands of capital…. Ellams offers an easy intimacy, and the story tumbles out with a low-key virtuosity, the words falling skittishly over each other. --The Guardian

an intensely vivid and poetic seventy-minute monologue. --Whats On Stage

a layered piece, 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. 4 stars. --Evening Standard

It's like Daedalus and Icarus re-imagined in consumer capitalist terms, with their eventual downfall coming in a Chinese fabric factory… Ellams has an easy, laid-back charisma and pares poetic flair for narrative with admirable restraint. The wordsmith remains present, though, and his sentences, with their sophisticated flavour and texture combinations, can be something of a Michelin-starred mouthful…. you sink into his storytelling. 4 stars --Time Out
