No More Mr Nice Guy

Keloughn goes face to face with his fears to make it to the other side of his first headline-gig.

This play explores the life of Keloughn Douglas: A people-pleasing teacher who hopes to become a successful musician. As he headlines his first gig he is forced to confront his complicated past and see if he has what it takes to seize his future. Featuring an eclectic mix of rap, R&B and spoken word performed alongside a live-band, we are catapulted into Keloughn’s world and explore what it means to be a Black-British man fighting for a dream.
