PASSION FRUIT
  • London Fringe

I soon realised that it wasnt about him, about them, it wasnt about anything outside of myself. It rushed over me, calming and cooling my skin. I am enough.

Passion Fruit follows our hero's journey from boy to man, a story of coming of age in a world that seems to judge him for both his heritage and sexuality. After surviving a violent adolescence our hero finds thrill and acceptance on the black gay scene. However as well as hedonism and a home, the raving scene is a destructive underworld and before long our hero must rescue himself once more. Our hero will teach us that only self-love and self-acceptance can truly save us.

Passion Fruit will having you rolling in your seat with laughter, bring a tear to your eye and make you question what it means to truly live.

Passion Fruit: a story about growing up gay and British-Jamaican on a north London Estate. A coming of age story following a young gay black mans journey to self-acceptance while attempting to avoid the criminality, violence and homophobia of his heritage. Passion Fruit is an intersectional story exploring class, race, sexuality, domestic and gang violence in 21st century Britain.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
