‘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, computer games and even dreams, everything other than their 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” grow up in opposite ends of Britain’s social spectrum. Then on Harry’s birthday, Runako (Roger’s reclaimed Zimbabwean birth name) returns for a dream reunion that turns into a nightmare situation.
Nothing’s off-limits, from innocent primary school humiliations to race, privilege, allyship and male vulnerability. Human Nurture is a new play from Ryan Calais Cameron that is full of colour and noise, and a lot of dynamite.
