A Theatre Centre / Sheffield Theatres co-production

Human Nurture

by Ryan Calais Cameron Tue 22 – Sat 26 Mar 22 60 minutes
A new play from the writer of Typical and For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When the Hue Gets Too Heavy featuring live music, moves and plenty of dynamite.

“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, even dreams – but not race. Roger is black and Harry is white…but what does that matter, right?


‘Powerful… deeply poignant.’


When Roger is rehomed, Harry is left behind in the care system, and these brothers start to walk down 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.
