A new Box Clever director has been engaged to bring Mark & the Marked back to life for 2015. Kimberley Sykes joins the company after working with the RSC and the World Shakespeare Festival, and will direct our anti-bullying play.
Kimberley has also worked with Pascal Theatre Company on a New York run of The Dybbuk, directed Kotles’ In the Solitude of Cotton Fields at Tristan Bates Theatre as well as being a finalist for the Resident Assistant Director position at Donmar Warehouse.
Kimberley’s talent for interweaving choreography to create stunning physical theatre will bring Mark & the Marked to life again for younger audiences.
The play, which does not include any speech, will be delivered to 25 primary schools in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and South Essex in March.
Joining Kimberley is a stunning cast that includes Darrel Bailey, Maria Gray and Carl Chambers, most of whom have worked on similar performances that engage young audiences in dialogue about challenging issues. To find out all about these performers, and the rest of the Mark & the Marked Company, visit our Clever People page.
