    About

    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 & 70’s Wales.

    Charting the time of life when children are said to view their parents as gods, but never having actually lived with them, Phil considers if his parents were, in fact, the gods he had imagined them to be…

    Exploring equality, freedom, racism, family and growing up without your birth parents, in an enthralling performance, you’ll discover The Gods Are All Here is both timeless and very much a story of now!
