Black T-shirt Collection
Written and performed by Inua Ellams
A game-changer in British theatre, don’t miss Inua Ellams as he brings his acclaimed one-man show to Melbourne.
Ellams has charmed audiences around the world with his laid-back charisma and melodic storytelling style, and received great acclaim for his 2017 National Theatre production Barber Shop Chronicles.
Black T-shirt Collection tells the story of two Nigerian brothers whose differences – one gay, one straight; one Christian, one Muslim – are nothing compared to the fierce bond they share.
From humble beginnings in Nigerian markets they build a t-shirt brand that takes them on an adventure around the world: to the bazaars of Cairo, the nightclubs of Europe and the sweatshops of China.
Black T-shirt Collection began its journey at the National Theatre of Great Britain, and carries with it all that is most urgent today, wrestling with migration, religion, homophobia and consumer culture.
