For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy returns to London’s West End in 2024 following three previously sold-out runs.

‘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.

Inspired by Ntozake Shange’s ‘For Colored 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.
