How do you show and receive love as a Black man, especially a Black, openly gay roadman, when you have no guide?

Aidyn and Kairo are perfect together; they figured it out and have something strong that works for them. But one night after a party, the strength of their love is put to the ultimate test, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy and changing their relationship forever.

In his debut play, a queer, romantic multiverse drama about first love and jealousy. Ashley Byam explores the complexities of Black masculinity, the queer experience and what it means to have the perfect relationship. As the story unfolds and challenges arise, the play asks – what aspects of ourselves are we prepared to sacrifice to pursue the picture-perfect “romcom” ending?
