Public Reading Of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's Screenplay Farming At Sundance London

You’ve seen British actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in many TV and films roles such as Lost, The Bourne Identity and G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra though no one, except him, really knows how to pronounce his name.

But did you know that he’s also a screenwriter? This month there’s going to be a public table reading of his screenplay Farming, on Friday April 27th at the Sundance London Film Festival.

The script, which he developed at the Sundance Screenwriting Lab, is based on his own upbringing in London, or as he calls it, the story of “a young African boy’s search for love and belonging within a brutal skinhead subculture”.  

Tickets are free and available at the website for Sundance London HERE

But in addition, there’s a search for Nigerians in London to particpate in the reading of Farming.  They’re looking for “women & men – Teenagers – Middle Aged and aged 13 – 30, preferably with acting experience”
