Palm Wine and Stout – Eastern Angles

Home  /  Events  /  Palm Wine and Stout - Eastern Angles

Written by acclaimed poet, composer and playwright Segun Lee French this funny and emotional play is based on the writer’s own journey back to a small Nigerian village in search of his father. The story, which focuses on Taiye, a young British man on a quest to find out more about his African heritage, draws some fascinating parallels with English village life. Along the way Taiye meets up with his half-brother, Femi, and a challenging culture clash ensues incorporating music, dance and whole host of entertaining ancestors.

Palm Wine & Stout premiered in 2010 when it received fantastic feedback from audiences and critics. Now Eastern Angles are touring the show to a wider audience.

This play will strike a chord with those familiar with the amusing eccentricities and petty politics of the village!

“This production fairly sizzled with energy and ideas”
East Anglian Daily Times

“A tale of pride and tenderness, money and mourning that is
warm, sharp, funny and refreshingly challenging”
