About the event

Africa Writes 2018 celebrates the best of African literature from the continent and the diaspora. Opening the festival is Yomi Sode's one-man performance COAT. COAT explores themes of identity, migration and displacement through the character Junior, a child born in Nigeria who moves to London at the age of nine.

Whilst cooking up a stew on stage, Sode confronts the difficult realities of growing up in south London as a young man, and the expectations of family, blending poetry and drama in a unique performance style rich with lyricism, humour and hard truths.
