Box Clever

In a women’s shelter in East London, Marnie is doing her best to care for her four-year-old daughter. But it would be a lot easier if she had the support of her case workers, or could finally ditch the three useless ex-boyfriends that keep hanging around her. Mouthy, headstrong and maybe just a tad crazy, Marnie is going to prove to everyone that she’s a competent mother. Because she is…isn’t she? Directed by Tom Reing.

“Writer Monsay Whitney’s Box Clever is one of the most important shows up at the Edinburgh Fringe this year…Whitney’s text is infused with anger, vulnerability, comedy and overwhelming honesty.”—Broadway Baby

While this play has moments of levity, it does tackle some difficult issues including intimate partner violence. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
