Exclusive £10 Ticket Offer Inua Ellam’s “The Half the God of Rainfall” until 14th May

Kiln TheatreFuel and Birmingham Repertory Theatre present  THE HALF GOD OF RAINFALL  by Inua Ellams

 

We risk war. This is the consequence. Battle. Shield. Spear and sword. Conflict amongst the Gods. This must be avoided.

When Demi, the half Nigerian-mortal, half Greek-God, is angry, rain clouds gather. When he cries, rivers burst their banks.

The first time Demi takes a shot on the local basketball court, the deities of the land awaken. As he unknowingly sparks Zeus’ wrath, his mother Modupe takes matters into her mortal hands and the consequences change their lives forever.

From award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams (Barber Shop ChroniclesAn Evening With An Immigrant) comes a new myth.  The Half God of Rainfall is a contemporary epic that weaves poetry and storytelling in a majestic journey that transports us from a tiny village in South West Nigeria to Mount Olympus, to the further reaches of our galaxy and beyond. With KWAMI ODOOM & RAKIE AYOLA.
