Following its sold out premiere at the New Diorama Theatre in 2021, Ryan Calais Cameron’s new play comes to the Royal Court for a limited six-week run.
“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…, inspired by Ntozake Shange’s seminal work For Colored Girls… is located on the threshold of joyful fantasy and brutal reality: a world of music, movement, storytelling and verse – where six men clash and connect in a desperate bid for survival.
