Boxed In

A playful show about (mis)understanding the rules.

A Daryl & Co and Half Moon co-production 

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

Boxed In follows the journey of someone who can't make head nor tail of the unspoken rules that surround us all. Sometimes stop means go and go means stop. Are you to go this way or that? Sometimes it's up and sometimes it’s down.

In a world where everyone else seems to understand, it can all get a bit confusing. And when you get it wrong, you’re made to sit out, but you don’t understand why. It seems so unfair.

Boxed In explores the unspoken barriers of attitudes, social etiquette and behaviour that surround us… How do you know a barrier is there if you can’t see it? And if you can't see it, how can you remove it? 

This heartfelt story is about being made to feel naughty, just because the rules don’t make sense.

Boxed in is a Daryl & Co and Half Moon co-production; an exciting collaboration by a ground-breaking Disabled-led theatre company and the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company.

“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”
