Sweet Like Chocolate Boy
presented by Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu

produced By Playback Drama

performed by Alice Fofana, Bernard Mensah, Jade Hackett and Michael Fatogun


Mars is a street-smart, enthusiastic, lyrically saturated young man on the way to propose to the girl of his dreams...and join a Black lives matters march to woo her for good measure . But on the way, he meets a barrage of characters - both alive and undead - questioning his heart , head, health and hubris in the London borough of Obsidian.

On the other side, Bounty is a very quiet boy in the very loud borough of Obsidian - but in the 80s and 90s. Living in a strict household, he is in constant awe of the politically charged Black world around him. It is all spiritually explosive stuff; but as Bounty witnesses deaths & births, riots & carnivals, love & indifference - he questions whether he is has both the strength and will to survive.

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

Sweet Like Chocolate Boy, is a storytelling epic that melts timelines, lives, fantasy, garage, jungle and brings to the boil the broiling estates of London.
