Box of Tricks pride themselves on working with some of the best new talent in the industry.

True to form, this spring Box of Tricks bring Too Much World at Once to HOME Manchester; a debut play by Billie Collins which was developed during the company’s PlayBox scheme, a year-long writer-on-attachment programme offering a bespoke residency and support from Box of Tricks.

Two Much World at Once is described as “an urgent coming-of-age story for our times” and a “lyrical, theatrical journey” spanning “continents and lives”. The narrative focuses on the lives of two siblings, their home and connection, and what happens when it all begins to fall down.

An urgent coming-of-age story for our times.

On his fifteenth birthday, Noble transforms into a bird. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, his sister Cleo is situated on a remote island with the British Antarctic Survey. The birds have all disappeared and Noble needs to reach his sister. Keeping out of sight until it’s time to take flight, he finds comfort in an outsider, Ellis; all the while, his mum struggles to stop their home from falling apart.

Too Much World at Once will receive its stage premiere at HOME Manchester before embarking on a UK tour – venues are set to include Theatre by the Lake in Keswick on 20 March, the Epstein Theatre in Liverpool on 23 March, Brewery Arts in Kendal on 29 March and The Met in Bury on 5 April.
