TIMBUKTU directly confronts the current crises consuming and confining contemporary Black males, challenging traditional conceptions of Black masculinity and notions of a monolithic, centralised, and authentic Black manhood. 

The play is a candid portrait of, racial and economic injustice, hyper-masculinity, love and pain. Externalising the inner tensions experienced by young Black men as they attempt to negotiate the processes of life.

TIMBUKTU is told from the perspective of four articulate young men during the aftermath of another murder on their Council Estate. Weaving together movement, poetry; storytelling and direct audience address.
