Fuel presents Inua Ellams’

The 14th Tale

The Fringe First Award-winning show is Inua Ellams’ hilarious and poetic coming-of-age story which follows his real life journey from his birth place in Nigeria to the culture-shock of England, charting his trials, tribulations and mischief-making along the way.

Completing its second tour this autumn, Inua Ellams’ The 14th Tale visited schools across the UK and was seen by over 1,400 school students. This year actor Michael Oku performed the one-man show and also delivered accompanying workshop sessions.

Adapted by Inua Ellams and director Thierry Lawson

Funded by Arts Council England. Performed in schools.
