Written by Chinonyerem Odimba, with music by Ben and Max Ringham, co-directed by Chinonyerem Odimba and Katie Posner. Part of Belgrade Theatre’s Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 programme.

Presented as part of Roundabout 2021 – a festival of new world-class plays and community-led activities taking place this summer in Wood End, Coventry.

Introducing Roundabout’s first ever musical.

Love freely. Love freedom. Love.

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

They look after each other in their small London flat, filled with the memories of their parents’ Black Love.

When that love is threatened, they have to find their way back to each other and to what it means to love whilst Black. Using real-life stories, imagined worlds and new songs inspired by an R&B heritage, they begin a journey to confronting their own worst fears.

Black Love is an explosion of form busting storytelling, an ode to Black music, and those real stories we rarely hear.

Age Guidance: 12+
