Dates: Winter 2007
Location: Civic Hall, Stratford, London
Director: Dominic Cooke
Cast: Ony Uhiara

A stage adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s best selling novel, the world of the Crosses and the noughts is reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It’s a modern-day tale of star-crossed lovers, race and violence.

We follow the love story of Sephy and Callum, two young people kept apart by bigotry, terrorism and injustice. Sephy is a Prime Minister’s daughter from the powerful Crosses who falls for rebel Callum, son of a dangerous nought agitator. Their desire to be together threatens family loyalties and sparks a growing political crisis.

🚨 After its run at the Civic Hall in Stratford-upon-Avon in the winter of 2007, Noughts & Crosses toured the UK in 2008.

+ March 28, 2007 – April 21, 2007
Location: Citizens’ Theatre, Glasgow
+ Bush Theatre, London
Director: Claire Lizzimore
Cast: Liam Brennan, Meg Fraser

A political drama from 1970s West Germany, Franz Xaver Kroetz’s work “Tom Fool”, translated by Estella Schmid and Anthony Vivis, examines a factory worker who reaches crisis point with his wife and child, his fantasy life shading into reality.

Tom Fool takes us back to the moment when women finally began to change the rules of the game. Otto Meier is a superb portrait of what still passed, in 1970s Germany, for an ordinary working man. Obsessed with the minute hierarchies of his factory workplace, used to taking his wife Martha completely for granted and inclined to see his stroppy 16-year-old son as a rival rather than a child in his care, Otto finds his world shattered when a terminal row with his son drives Martha to pack her bag and leave, leaving him alone to deal with the insecurities and alienations of his working life.

🚨 Tom Fool was so well received at the Citizens’ Theatre in Glasgow, that it transferred to London at the Bush Theatre.
