For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy in London

Following three sold-out runs, including a limited six-week run at the Apollo Theatre in 2023 Ryan Calais Cameron's play For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy returns to the West End in February 2024. Nominated for Best New Play and Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the 2023 Olivier Awards, the production will head into the Garrick Theatre for a limited nine-week run.

About For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy

Conceived in the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin in 2012 - this play was developed over the course of the last decade with young Black men and mental health groups. For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy focuses on six young Black men who meet for group therapy, and let their hearts - and imaginations - run wild.

The play is inspired by Ntozake Shange’s seminal work For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf. Selling out its original run at the New Diorama Theatre, the subsequent transfer to the Royal Court Theatre, and its initial West End run at the Apollo Theatre, it's a joyful experience. Make sure you book your tickets to see this critically acclaimed play's return to the stage.

For black boys

This production was amazing and spectacular. The cast was on point with the acting the dancing and the singing. I took my teenage son with me and he absolutely loved it also his first time at the theatre. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone especially men in general. One of the messages was to talk more about your feelings. It’s a fantastic play and you should go along to watch it.

Better than expected and I feel everyone should see this play !

True raw real inside knowledge of what a black men go through and how individual that experience is , covering all scope of topics and handled rather well ‘

Reviewed on 28 March 2024 by , Croydon, United Kingdom

Informative, and inspiring not only for the black community but for the diverse community.

The story line was on point, it addressed a range of issues raised in the black culture and community that are not often spoken about.

Powerful performances

Powerful to see these sometimes unheard stories have a light shone on them.

3rd time around says it all

This show needs to be seen by everyone. It needs to be fully acknowledged for its portrayal of a life most of us will never understand but many of us talk about; the black man, and for the brilliance of how its told. If it doesn't win awards then people aren't ready but I think they are. It's about time. Bring on the tour.

Reviewed on 09 March 2024 by , London, United Kingdom

An absolute must see! Please bring back another run!!

What a fabulous show! Very timely with current and poignant topics that were extremely relatable. Would love to see this again.Thank you for allowing black boys to be seen and heard.Such an important topic

Review: FOR BLACK BOYS... at The Garrick Theatre

by Stuart King | Friday, March 8 2024, 21:52

Created by Ryan Calais Cameron and originally presented at the New Diorama Theatre, For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When the Hue Gets Too Heavy was inspired by Ntozake Shange’s seminal choreopoem For Coloured Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When The Rainbow Is Enuf and went through various iterations during its 12 years in development. Its format (6 black guys who interact through dialogue, song and movement) acts as a simple vehicle for presenting some weighty subjects disguised by a slick, stylish and playful delivery.
