About the Show/Event
Information for The Death of a Black Man at Hampstead Theatre, Inner London (Play). It's 1973, and the King's Road is the epicentre of everything that's cool and happening in the world. Shakie, an 18-year old super-smart wheeler-dealer, is in his element hustling dodgy African furniture and is starting to make some serious money. His best friend Stumpie is developing a grand scheme for a London festival of Black music which, with Shakie's backing, is going to make them both super-rich. So when Shakie's older ex-lover Jackie arrives at his Chelsea flat on a visit, the trio toast the future in champagne. But the boys have been living it large for too long and they're heading for dangerous territory...
