    NOUGHTS & CROSSES 

    By Malorie Blackman

    Adapted by Sabrina Mahfouz
    Directed by Esther Richardson

     

    Pilot Theatre bring their acclaimed production of ’Noughts & Crosses’ back to the stage. 

    “Why love, if losing hurts so much?”

    Sephy and Callum sit together on a beach. They are in love.

    It is forbidden.

    Sephy is a Cross and Callum is a Nought. Between Noughts and Crosses there are racial and social divides. A segregated society teeters on a volatile knife edge.

    As violence breaks out, Sephy and Callum draw closer, but this is a romance that will lead them into terrible danger.

    This gripping Romeo and Juliet story by award winning writer Malorie Blackman and adapted by Sabrina Mahfouz is a captivating drama of love, revolution and what it means to grow up in a divided world.

     

    Age guidance: 12+

    Duration: 2 hours, with an interval. 

     

     Original production by Pilot Theatre with Derby Theatre, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, Mercury Theatre Colchester and York Theatre Royal
