'I found a king in me and now I love you
I found a king in you and now I love me'
Father figures and fashion tips. Lost loves and jollof rice. African empires and illicit sex. Good days and bad days. Six young Black men meet for group therapy, and let their hearts – and imaginations – run wild.
For Black Boys is located on the threshold of joyful fantasy and brutal reality.
A profound and playful new work from multi-award-winning company Nouveau Riche and playwright Ryan Calais Cameron, whose 2021 film Typical was heralded as a landmark event in digital theatre.
World premiere. Commissioned by New Diorama Theatre. Co-commissioned by Boundless Theatre.
The cast is mesmeric
Timely and has potent moments but this production feels underdeveloped
