    Sweet Like Chocolate Boy is a storytelling epic that melts timelines, lives, fantasy, Garage and Jungle and critiques Black British Protest in the broiling estates of London.

    You ever look out of your estate and feel like there is something…
    Beautiful here…but nobody’s happy enough to see it?

    Mars is a street-smart, enthusiastic, lyrically saturated man-on-the-edge. Bounty is a very quiet boy in a very loud Borough with a new politically charged Black identity swirling around him.

    As their worlds collide, can they find their place in these times or will they get chewed, swallowed and digested by it?

    Returning from a sold out run in London’s Jack Studio, this two time Offie-nominated show aims to examine the spirit of revolution whilst simultaneously celebrating the beauty of Black British Culture from the 90s onwards.
