About

Trim? Fresh.

Skin? Glowing.

Vibes? Immaculate.

Nathaniel is a serious romantic who sees love as a fine art. He’s looking for the Mona Lisa to his da Vinci, and tonight is the night: his date with Destiny…’s Child.

Winner of the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2022, Nathan Queeley-Dennis’ debut play is a love letter to Birmingham, exploring Black masculinity through Beyonce lyrics, techno raves and the deeply intimate relationship between a man and his barber. Directed by Dermot Daly.

From Ellie Keel Productions, winner The Stage Awards 2024: Producer of the Year, whose recent work includes the Olivier Award-nominated The Swell by Isley Lynn.
