BOX at Waterside, Manchester 29 February 2020 Tickets from £7.50 — Book now

BOX is a playful, acrobatic exploration of what it is to have and to be a sibling, in which we follow a brother and sister as they negotiate the world.

Based on, in, atop and around a large cube, which expands over the course of the show, BOX explores that special relationship, which can be challenging and frustrating but also compassionate and filled with love.
