“If you not give elephant proper burial he’ll haunt you forever.” 

Following its world premiere at the Public Theater in New York, Mlima’s Tale makes its UK premiere at Kiln Theatre in September. 

Mlima is known as one of the last ‘Great Tuskers’ – elephants with tusks so large they touch the ground. When he is murdered for these magnificent tusks, Mlima’s ghost follows those connected to his death. From poachers, to government officials, to ivory carvers, he watches as capitalism, greed and corruption marks everyone in the ivory trade.

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage (MJ The Musical, The Secret Life of Bees) and directed by Miranda Cromwell (Death of a Salesman), this powerful and unforgettable story leaves its mark long after the lights go down.

Femi Temowo


Femi Temowo is a MOBO Award nominated musician who was raised listening to West African pioneers such as Fela Kuti, Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey. Later he discovered the legendary Charlie Parker and classic jazz albums such as Miles Davis’ Kind Of Blue. It was when he became inspired by the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery that he decided to pursue his passion for the guitar, based around a fusion of these musical influences.

Early benchmarks in Femi’s career include being approached by critically acclaimed jazz saxophonist and UK Hip Hop artist Soweto Kinch, who asked him to become part of his newly formed quartet in 2002. His phenomenally successful collaborations with Soweto culminated in a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize, a BBC Jazz award for best new group and several MOBO awards. As his talent and success gained momentum, so too did the demand for Femi as a versatile and stylish guitar player. Femi’s intricacy and skill on his instrument of choice led to a diverse range of high profile collaborations.

Femi’s slick and melodic guitar sound has earned him a place beside many great musicians and artists from across many genres, having played with the likes of: George Benson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Courtney Pine, The Roots, Omar, Roachford, Amy Winehouse, Jason Rebello, Eska Mtungwazi, Soweto Kinch, Terri Walker, Jean Toussaint, Don Blackman, Michal Urbaniak and many more.

Theatre credits include: Death of a Salesman (Broadway / Young Vic / West End); Cock (West End); Much Ao About Nothing (Royal Shakespeare Company); and breathe… (Almeida Theatre – Best Composer /  Musical Director winner at Black British Theatre Awards); Rockets and Blue Lights (National Theatre / Royal Exchange Theatre) and Three Sisters (National Theatre).
