There is something about Demi. When this boy is angry, rain clouds gather. When he cries, rivers burst their banks and the first time he takes a shot on a basketball court, the deities of the land take note. From Inua Ellams, the award-winning poet and playwright behind Barber Shop Chronicles, on stage at Bristol Old Vic this May, The Half-God of Rainfall is an epic story and a lyrical exploration of pride, power and female revenge.

Inua Ellams will be talking with Dr Madhu Krishnan, Senior Lecturer in Postcolonial Writing at the University of Bristol, about his astonishing new novel and the power of storytelling through theatre and poetry.
