Presented by Maya Productions in association with Harrogate Theatre and LittleMighty

By Jonny Wright

A potent hip-hop journey through friendship, the North/South divide and black identity in an increasingly divided nation.

Yorkshire rapper XYM faces the sudden death of his father, who always wanted a career as a musician. He decides he will make it where his dad never did. On the night of the Brexit vote, he brings together his crew, Yorkie and Kofi. He convinces them to quit their day jobs and move to London to follow their dreams.

But their differing political views are already causing tension. And when a record label offers them the chance of a lifetime, their friendship is tested to its limits.

Written by playwright, actor and hip-hop artist Jonny Wright (Talawa, Film 4), the show smashes together an urgent theatricality with rap and spoken word to tell a powerful story of contemporary Britain.

Suitable for ages 12 years and over.
