Toye is preparing for his piano exam to enter a prestigious music school. He’s doing it for the contacts, the opportunity, but when he notices the lack of Black British history in his school’s curriculum, he begins to question himself. Is this really his dream, or is he letting these institutions write his story? He offers his own lessons on Black cultural icons, but he discovers that not everyone wants to celebrate Black history… An empowering new play by Channel 4 bursary winner Dipo Baruwa-Etti about the pressures of being young, gifted and ready to change the world.
