No More Mr Nice Guy returns to CPT, chronicling the life of Keloughn Douglas, a British-Caribbean Music Teacher caught in a love cube: his aspiration for senior leadership; his passion to become a successful musician, and his desire to marry the woman of his dreams.
As he struggles to balance work-and-play whilst side-stepping the microaggressions of the day, Keloughn’s worlds collide and he soon finds himself desperately clinging to his sanity whilst life unravels. Something has to give, but at what cost?
We are swiftly immersed inside the mind of our protagonist using a skilful blend of storytelling, movement, rap, RnB and an interplay of sound effects.
With audiences describing the piece as, ‘skilful’, ‘funny’, ‘thought-provoking’ and ‘clever’, this new piece of experimental gig theatre is a must-see!
No More Mr Nice Guy is a new (work-in-progress) show by Cal-I Jonel, an exciting and emerging performer and creative artist, in association with Nouveau Riche and seed-commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre.
