Romeo and Juliet
The adaptation fully realises the characters of the lovers and brings to life their world. Through the inclusion of the Narrator our re-imagining ensures that Romeo and Juliet themselves do not remain literary creations distant from the 21st century.

Movement by Emily Orme.
Ezra and his Dad both love music – it’s what binds them together. But what happens when the chaos of the world threatens to jeopardise this bond?
The role of music in the lives of a father and a son is intrinsic to this new play commissioned by Box Clever to celebrate 25 years of boxing clever. Music is what connects the father and the son. It’s what they have in common and in the end, it is what saves and strengthens the bond between them.
Read by Joel Nash and Jack Blakey

Directed by Kitty Winter.
Resource material designed by Maya Twardzicki.
Music by Jack Blakey.
Through a magnificent medley of rhythyms and rhymes and words carefully chosen, a young man seeks to come to terms and be at piece with, who he is. At times, angry, at times very funny and at times deeply moving, the play is the third play to be commissioned by Box Clever in celebration of 25 years of boxing clever.
