Black Love (Kiln Theatre)

by Chinonyerem Odimba, with Music by Ben and Max Ringham 

Following a five-star, critically acclaimed national tour, Black Love goes to Kiln Theatre for a strictly limited run.

Meet Aurora and Orion. Sister and brother. Constellations in time. More than blood. More than just fam. 

Inside their small London flat, memories of their parents’ Black love surrounds them. When that love is threatened, they must first find understanding and connection before they can begin to find a way back to one another.

An explosion of form-busting storytelling, Black Love celebrates and investigates the Black experience through music, real-life stories and imagined worlds. This ‘beautiful ode to black society and home’ (The Guardian) is not to be missed.

The production is presented by Kiln Theatre, Paines Plough and tiata fahodzi.
