The Spalding Suite (Oberon Modern Plays)

 
9781783198078: The Spalding Suite (Oberon Modern Plays)

Seen from a British perspective, The Spalding Suite gets to the heart and soul of the gravity-defying game of basketball and delves into the hopes and dreams of those who play it. From the fleeting high of the score and the robust camaraderie of the team, to the poignant lows of a body too worn to play the game.

About the Author:

Born in Nigeria in 1984, Inua Ellams is an internationally touring poet, playwright, performer, graphic artist & designer. He has published two volumes of poetry: Candy Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars and Thirteen Fairy Negro Tales. His first play The 14th Tale (a one-man show which he performed) was awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh International Theatre Festival and his third, Black T-Shirt Collection ran at England’s National Theatre. He lives and works from London, where he founded the Midnight Run, a nocturnal urban excursion.

Review:

'It magnifies not just the beauty of the game itself, but the emotions of those playing it... This is a multilayered piece that should appeal to all ages, performed by an engaging cast, and boasting a terrific beat-boxing soundtrack. Fun, and sometimes unexpectedly moving'. Lyn Gardner, Guardian;
