Joe Boateng, the 'David Beckham' of his generation, is Ghanaian.
Naomi, his childhood sweetheart is British and of Jamaican parentage.
With Joe's escalating celebrity status comes huge sacrifices,
accusations of selling out, temptations and life changing choices.
Joe Guy is a stark and powerful contemporary story
exploring the historical tension and bitter prejudices existing between
African and Caribbean British communities. It looks at how young
descendants from Africa distance themselves from a unified urban Black
Britain. This urgent examination of identity and celebrity is told in
Tiata Fahodzi's renowned visceral style.
This is a programme text edition published to coincide with the
play's world premiere in a production by Tiata Fahodzi that opens at
the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich,on 18 October before coming to Soho
