Daryl is eating a banana onstage, his eyes looking to the left as he prepares to take a big bite.

Boxed In

Who says a line should always be straight? What’s wrong with zig zags? How about curves?  

Boxed in is a charming story for little ones and their families about being made to feel naughty because the rules just don't make sense.

This show takes a fun sideways look at how we understand the way the world works - social norms and attitudes - and what happens when we don't.

“The other teachers and children raved about this”
“The kids throughly enjoyed it and in this day and age where everything creative and artistic is being cut from our school, it's so important to give them this to experience”
“It was such a lovely opportunity for children to experience theatre in their own school”
