“You ever look out of your estate and feel like there is something…Beautiful here…but nobody’s happy enough to see it?”


Mars is a street-smart, enthusiastic, lyrically-saturated man on-the-edge about to propose to the girl of his dreams in present-day London.

Bounty is a very quiet boy in a very loud Borough paddling through the 90s with this new politically charged Black identity swirling around him.

As the worlds of Mars and Bounty collide, can they find their place in these times or will they get chewed, swallowed and digested by it?

Sweet Like Chocolate Boy, by award-winning theatre-maker Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu, is a storytelling epic that melts timelines, lives, fantasy, Garage and Jungle and critiques Black British Protest in the broiling estates of London.

Critic reviews

Nostalgia-filled epic adventure about finding your way in the dark as a young black man

The Stage

The two male leads are splendid - Andrew Umerah vesting Mars with a brittle cocksure confidence, swapping over to be threateningly charismatic as Prophet
