OKC REP in partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary presents An Evening with an Immigrant. Inua Ellams tells his story from being born in modern day Boko Haram territory to drinking wine with the Queen of England.
This presentation is part of a new initiative with The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival called UNDER THE RADAR: ON THE ROAD.
AN EVENING WITH AN IMMIGRANT will be performed as part of the 18th Annual Under the Radar Festival at The Public Theater in New York City from January 18-20. Following these performances in the Under the Radar Festival, AN EVENING WITH AN IMMIGRANT will come to Oklahoma City on January 22-23 and then to Stanford Live on January 29-30.
