This event is currently sold out but do check back here regularly for possible cancellations.

To celebrate Inua Ellams’ ground-breaking new version of Three Sisters, set in 1960s Nigeria, the National Theatre is proud to host the official Three Sisters (W)R.A.P Party to close out the incredible three month run.

Inua Ellams’ Rhythm and Poetry Party is a nostalgic, no-clutter, no-fuss night of poetry and music. This special edition takes over the Lyttelton Theatre foyer for one night only.

Ten Nigerian poets will perform commissioned poems responding to the play’s themes of sisterhood, feminism and womanism during pre and post-colonial Nigeria - all sound-tracked by a selection of Afrobeat, Hip-Life and Hip Hop tracks by DJ Lex Amor and hosted by Inua Ellams himself.

Inua Ellams’ (W)R.A.P Party at The National will feature the incredible talents of Tolu Abgelusi, Sarah Lasoye, Rachel Long, Tania Nwachukwu, Rachel Nwokoro, Selina Nwulu, Obi Okigbo, Tolani Shoneye, Ruth Sutoyé and Michelle Tiwo.

Enjoy drinks at our Long Bar and food by Angry Black Kitchen.
