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.
Located on the threshold of joyful fantasy and brutal reality, this is a world of music, movement, storytelling and verse, where six men clash and connect in a desperate bid for survival.
For Black Boys... is a profound and playful new work from multi-award-winning company Nouveau Riche and playwright Ryan Calais Cameron, whose 2021 film Typical, based on the 2019 play with Richard Blackwood, was heralded as a landmark event in digital theatre. This edition was published to coincide with the production at the Royal Court Theatre, London in March 2022, following a critically acclaimed world premiere in October 2021 at New Diorama Theatre, London. It was co-commissioned by Boundless Theatre.
