Black Boys

Buddies In Bad Times & Saga Collectif


A raw, intimate and timely exploration of queer male Blackness. Black Boys is created from the lives of three people seeking a deeper understanding of themselves, of each other and of how they encounter the world. As they explore their unique identities on stage, they subvert the ways in which gender, sexuality and race are performed. Theatrical and intimate, Black Boys weaves together the ensemble’s own personal stories in search of an integrated self and a radical imagination.

What they're saying

"As provocative as it is entertaining… a metatheatrical experience that’ll reinvigorate your love for live theatre"
- Raymond Helkio, The Reading Salon

"Genre-defining... This is an exceptional, powerful, and quite delightful piece of work. I feel lucky and grateful to have been able to see it, and I predict you will be too"
- S. Bear Bergman, Mooney on Theatre
