A play by Gideon D. Wilonja

Written by Melbourne's up and coming playwright Gideon D. Wilonja, winner of the 2021 Wyndham Art Prize.

Do Black Boys Go To Heaven? is a story about Remi, a queer troublesome, ambitious, curious boy who won't bend to the rules of his town or society. Set in a small town where nothing magnificent happens, a town where gentrification is taking form in “betterment of society”, where hatred hides it's ugly face behind God's name and legal authority crosses boundaries with extreme policing of basic human rights.

Do Black Boys Go To Heaven? is a play about rage, repressed trauma, purpose, one's truth, but at the core of it all, this play predominantly explores the question “Where Do Black Boys Go For Healing?
