Meet Aurora and Orion: Sister and Brother. Constellations in time. More than blood. More than just fam. They look after each other in their small London flat, filled with the memories of their parents' Black Love.

When that love is threatened, they must confront their own worst fears as they find their way back to each other and to what it means to love whilst Black.

Black Love by Chinonyerem Odimba, with music by Ben and Max Ringham, is an explosion of form-busting storytelling, combining real-life stories, imagined worlds, and new songs inspired by an R&B heritage.


"A lesson in the complexities of family relationships... manages to find humour even in the most uncomfortable of problematic comments... a powerful reminder of everyday Black existence... a beautiful ode to Black society and home."

- Guardian

"A powerful and very raw expression of the struggle to identify and understand what it means to be a Black family, and to share Black love together."

- Musical Theatre Review
