‘For Black Boys…’ is back in the West End

By March 22, 2024Lifestyle

Dubbed as a Landmark Moment in West End Theatre.

Following sold-out runs at the Apollo Theatre, Royal Court Theatre and New Diorama Theatre, Ryan Calais Cameron’s Olivier-Award nominated, multi award-winning For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy is back in the West End and has extended due to popular demand until 1 June.

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.

Inspired by Ntozake Shange’s “For Coloured Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf”, For Black Boys… 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.
