In the late 15th century, John Blanke, a young black musician of exceptional talent left the ancient city of Granada and made his way to the court of Henry VII of England. There he forged a surprising musical bond with the child who would become the infamous Henry VIII. These two extraordinary young men scramble their way to adulthood full of feeling, often outrageously funny, as they try to figure out love, sex, politics, and what it means to be a man.

Meticulously researched, written and directed here in Northern Ireland by playwright Andrea Montgomery, who is known for her giant Northern Irish Shakespeare projects. The piece has a soundscape by Nick Boyle.
