Amazing Theatre Trip for LAE Students

LAE students representing the BAME network were proud and delighted to be invited by the outreach team at the Royal Court Theatre to attend 'an amazing and insightful show' in the West End.

Following sold out runs at the Royal Court Theatre and New Diorama â€‹Theatre, the award winning For Black Boys Who Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy has transferred to the Apollo Theatre, West End for a six week run.  Written by Ryan Calais Cameron this show is an exuberant and thought-provoking piece centering around six young black men attending group therapy.  Performed with boundless energy by an outstanding cast, LAE students were enthralled by the storytelling, poetry, music and thematic depth of their intertwined stories. 

“This production was beyond amazing, it’s difficult to express its genius in words. It looked at all the societal aspects in which black men have struggled with a perfect blend of humour, storytelling and emotion. I recommend everyone to go and watch it for a 10/10 experience”.

"I'd just like to take the time to thank you for organising such an amazing and insightful trip. I cannot express in words how much I enjoyed the production and I'm so proud to have represented the BAME network today."
