A brand-new musical comes to Coventry as part of City of Culture 2021.

This summer the Belgrade Theatre Coventry Paines Plough are delighted to be presenting Black Love – an explosion of form busting storytelling, an ode to Black music, and those real stories we rarely hear.

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 presented as part of Roundabout 2021 – an exciting festival of world-class plays performed in the UK’s first pop-up and play Theatre. Roundabout 2021 will be located in the grounds of Moat House Leisure and Neighbourhood Centre in the Wood End area of Coventry from Tues 27 July to Sun 8 August.

Come and experience this ground-breaking new musical in the UK City of Culture 2021.
