Ellams verse brims with magical realism... His delivery is charming and natural, and he is able to spin intricate, rhythmic webs of words with apparent ease. 45 minutes of allowing Inua Ellams to wrap his words around you is far from a painful experience. What is clear is that Ellams writing and performance, not to mention his Fringe First award, show that he has definite potential. --What's On Stage
...scorching… an intense and dense 40-minute monologue. --Guardian
