The challenges of growing up Black and the impact it has on mental health are the key themes of the acclaimed play, For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When the Hue Gets Too Heavy.

Right. I just need you to know that #forblackboys @royalcourt in the West End is one of the best pieces of theatre I have ever seen. It was just fucking exquisitely powerfully moving. Please please do yourself a favour and go and see it.

Sending all the love to the company of #ForBlackBoys ahead of their Press Night this evening ❤️

Catch Ryan Calais Cameron's award-winning, Olivier nominated Black Boy Fantasia in London's West End until 7 May.
