About

When Demi—half Greek god, half Nigerian mortal—takes his first shot on a basketball court, the deities of the land wake up. But as Demi’s skills propel him from his village in South West Nigeria to the NBA playoffs and the London Olympics, Zeus gets jealous of his game. From award-winning playwright and poet Inua Ellams (Barber Shop Chronicles) comes a new epic fusing Greek mythology and Yoruba spirituality, in which mothers, daughters, and goddesses rise up against the entitled lord of Mount Olympus.

The Half-God of Rainfall is directed by Taibi Magar (Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992Macbeth In StrideWe Live in Cairo) with movement direction by Orlando Pabotoy.

This production contains haze, fog, flashing lights, and loud sounds, and stages sexual and physical violence.
