Boi Boi is Dead

spring 2015

Afro-jazz legend, father, lover, playboy, husband, rule-breaker, enigmatic force of nature… boi boi is dead. But not forgotten.

Zodwa Nyoni is a Zimbabwe-born playwright, poet and performer based in Leeds. A compelling new voice Nyoni presents her first full-length play after a year-long Channel 4 writer’s residency at West Yorkshire Playhouse. boi boi is dead is an arresting exploration of family bonds, overwhelming love and the spirited tenacity of a new generation.

Left alone to rebuild her life, Miriam’s heartache is interrupted when Boi Boi’s reckless ex-wife and traditionalistic brother show up to stake their claim on his name, on his property and to revel in the glory of his fame. Determined to keep her family together, Miriam’s life is thrown into turmoil when Stella discovers the secret she shared only with Boi Boi.

With a new found power, will the beguiling Stella be triumphant in the face of Boi Boi’s death?
