An honest, touching and quirky piece of theatre for young people and their families.
It tells a tale of friends who enjoy the same routine day after day. Each day is exactly the same as the last and all the friends are happy. That is, until an unexpected change befalls one of the group. Suddenly, they are divided into those who can… and the one who can’t.
The friends realise their daily routine is no longer as enjoyable as it was. Together they decide to redefine the rules of the square world where they live. By injecting a little fun and chaos they soon discover their lives won’t be square ever again!
A Square World looks at the unfairness of being left out in a world designed for everyone but you.
This show tells a story with music, facial expressions and movement, instead of just using words. It has a beautiful original soundtrack and bold design. The actor uses object manipulation and elements of surprise to create an ever-evolving and imaginative world from just a few blocks.
This show is largely non-verbal. This makes it accessible to a range of people, including BSL users and non-English speakers. It is suitable (and fun!) for a range of ages.
