Man4Man

Yusuf is a man in search of a homeland. An Ethiopian migrant struggling to survive in the UK, he feels lost in a world where morals, culture and identity itself seem up for grabs. 

After taking on a highly unusual chauffeuring job, he becomes caught between two new mentors: a maverick porn producer and an aging African-American activist. Both want him to re-define himself. With his wife worrying back home, who will Yusuf choose to be? 

Man4Man challenges our preconceptions of race, sexuality and national identity. Inspired by the true stories of boundary-breaking figures like Black gay Civil Rights leader Bayard Rustin, this provocative, bold and funny play asks how the journeys we take influence the people we become.
