J.J. is an aspiring M.C., just arrived on London’s exciting outlaw urban music scene. He’s got the skills, he’s got the rhymes, he’s got the drive. But there’s a problem – not only is J.J. a white boy from the sticks – he’s also gay. And gay - in the world of hip-hop and ragga – ain’t good. So when J.J. resolves to come out onstage at the Urban Slam Finals, taking his boyfriend Orlando with him, he knows it’s going to get a bit grimy.... but when the couple falls foul of Infamous Ghetto Rap crew, ‘the Ilford Illmanics’, all of their lives are changed forever in a way no one could have ever foreseen.
Rikki Beadle-Blair (FIT, Kick Off) is back with a bang with this hard-hitting urban drama adapted from his stage play exploring the intersection of race, sexuality and music. Starring stand-up comedian and MTV presenter Joel Dommett in his first lead role performance as JJ and a host of Team Angelica regulars, Bashment is like nothing you have seen before.
