Take a look at our e-flyer for the sign interpreted performance of Inua Ellams’ sold out new show Black T-shirt Collection at the National Theatre, London on 20 April at 8.30pm.

Although the show is completely sold out, we have a provision of tickets for deaf friends of Fuel, which you can access via the code on the e-flyer.

A bit more about the show…

"He unfurls, slow, like a dust flower, except, he is looking at his black shirt. Santana’s footprint: stamped on his chest; perfect stone crystals glinting in the grooves..."

From Fringe First winner Inua Ellams comes a new story about two foster brothers building a global t-shirt brand. On their journey from a market in Nigeria to a sweatshop in China, Matthew and Muhammed discover the consequences of success.

Inua Ellams was born in Nigeria and now lives and works in London. He is a poet and graphic artist. His first show, The 14th Tale, won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh in 2009 and toured and also ran at London's National Theatre in spring 2010.

The show will be interpreted by Martin Roberts, who has worked with Inua and signed his work before, most recently The 14th Tale at Tara Arts last year. We strive to make our performances to include our interpreters in the action of the shows in interesting and exciting ways, making them a more enjoyable experience than the ‘tennis match’ moving of the head between the performer and the interpreter. We hope you enjoy the show!
