Strong language and the use of a racial slur

“I don’t agree with everything they say, but we do have a lot in common nowadays; anyway, I can’t be racist my best friend is Black.”

Roger and Harry’s bond is so strong they could be brothers. They share the same food, music, laughs, computer games and even dreams – but not race. Roger is black and Harry is white…but what does that matter, right?

When Roger is rehomed, Harry is left behind in the care system, and these brothers start to walk down very different paths. When Roger returns to celebrate Harry’s birthday, his new name Runaku isn’t the only change, and this dream reunion becomes much more complicated.

Human Nurture is a new play from Ryan Calais Cameron, directed by Rob Watt, about race, privilege and belonging, featuring live music, moves and plenty of dynamite!

A Theatre Centre / Sheffield Theatre co-production.
