Yomi Sode opens Africa Writes 2018 with a special performance of his previously sold-out show
Picture this: Nigeria. A grandmother passes. London. A son cooks a pot of stew for his mother hoping to uncover hidden stories and unanswered questions.
'I don’t know my grandparents names, how embarrassing is that. But I can name all of Kanye’s albums.'COAT is an honest and emotional story of Junior. Born in Nigeria, he leaves at the age of nine and heads to London, leaving behind a life that he loved and was settled in.
'Home is no stranger, you are an African man and you have responsibilities as the eldest grandchild.'
In partnership with the Royal African Society. Supported by Arts Council England.
