Black gay men are placed under the microscope in Paul Boakye's classic 1990s fly-on-the-wall drama, 'Boy with Beer.' Described as "Black Britain's first gay drama," and "the final taboo" by The Voice Newspaper, the inspired and universal boy meets boy tale has something for everyone and never gets old.Boakye's dialogue is sharp, edgy, always on point, and his two leading characters fiercely matched as a lovable thug meets his upwardly-mobile counterpart and form an almost unlikely bond. But even handsome thugs can be turned into "African princes" in this taut urban drama with some admittedly 'fairy-tale' elements. Twenty-five years after its controversial London debut, however, 'Boy with Beer' still pulls a punch as the original hook-up drama. In so doing, it also touches on many contemporary issues facing gay men today.Will they, or won't they? That is the question. You won't be the only one squirming hotly in your seat while you follow the downright erotic encounters of Donovan and Karl as they hook-up, argue, and get lowdown and dirty. With every twist and turn in the unpredictable journey, you'll be hoping and praying that love really can conquer all. A great read Hear what others say here: https: //
