Show Time: Various times

By Inua Ellams as part of Dublin Theatre Festival

The 14th Tale is a free-flowing, mellifluous narrative that relates the hilarious exploits of a natural born mischief-maker, propelled from the clay streets of Nigeria to the rooftops of Dublin, where he lived as a teenager, and finally to London.
Inua Ellams vividly recreates the characters that punctuate his upbringing in deft and beautiful poetry, while challenging the audience’s expectations of what it is to be a young, black male in London today. Be swept away by this feat of playful story-telling on a poetic journey of family life,friendship and love.
“The 14th Tale comes as a sharp reminder of the power of language and rhythm in theatre, and of how dramatic poetry can create whole worlds through the voice of a single performer.” The Scotsman
Winner of Scotsman Fringe First Award 2009
