Sparked by the discovery of a series of letters from his father in Nigeria to his mother in Wales, The Gods Are All Here is a moving, funny and warm-hearted, one-man performance from first-class storyteller, Phil Okwedy.
This captivating storytelling show skilfully weaves myth, song, folktales and legends of the African diaspora with an astonishing personal story that uncovers Phil’s experiences of growing up as a child of dual heritage in 1960 & 70s Wales.
Phil explores equality, freedom, racism, family and growing up without your birth parents, in an enthralling, timeless performance.
Content warning: This production talks about being brought up with foster parents, there are stories of slavery that include descriptions of violence, and the show contains discriminatory language.
“His style of storytelling is captivating and sincere; vivid yet intimate”
