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 Who Have Considered Suicide When the Hue Gets Too Heavy explores the painful experiences of black men in Britain, from feeling societal pressure to maintain a macho image, to brutal police harassment and talks of identity. From the onset, this electrifying tale is balanced with fear and humour. Following sold-out runs at the Royal Court Theatre and New Diorama Theatre, the award-winning For Black Boys... now transfers to the Apollo Theatre for a strictly limited six week run.

For Black Boys stars Nnabiko Ejimofor (Jitney) as Jet, Darragh Hand (Silent Witness BBC) as Sable, Aruna Jalloh (Much Ado About Nothing) as Obsidian, Kaine Lawrence (Man Enough) as Midnight, Emmanuel Akwafo (Jack and The Beanstalk) as Pitch and Mark Akintimehin (Romeo and Juliet) as Onyx.

For Black Boys is written and directed by Ryan Calais Cameron, with musical direction by John Pfumojena, movement direction by Theophilus O. Bailey-Godson and set and costume design by Rory Beaton.
