It is a play that can be dance with words or a psychological musical. But movement is a key asset to a production that is outstanding in its emotions, performances and execution.

Written, choreographed and directed by Lanre Malaolu, it’s interesting to see the exploration of 21st-century Black masculinity.

The actors are amazing in how they carry themselves and show their characters’ despair. The performances are intense without becoming too intense. Alongside the darkness, there is a great amount of lightness, comedy and laughter. Songs by Stormzy, Burna Boy and Usher are used to good effect. Joyful brotherhood is captured and the ending feels ritualistic in its forgiveness, and healing.
