Now in its fourth year, Tiata Fahodzi’s annual new writing initiative Tiata Delights
will present work by six emerging and established playwrights all resident in the UK. Over the course of a week, six new plays will receive staged readings by three directors overseen by Artistic Director Femi Elufowoju, jr. This year’s season will open with a new play written by 2008 Laurence Olivier award-winner Bola Agbaje. The week-long event concludes on Saturday 2 August with a concert bringing together a selection of UK’s finest African musicians. The confirmed line up includes Jamiroquai’s Sola Akingbola, Contemporary-Gospel sensation GK Real, Sierra-Leonean Harmonica player Leon Maddy, James Lascelles and traditional African classicist Tunde Jegede.
