Purple Theatre Presents:


Wednesday 24th July


Critically acclaimed drama 'Boxes' by Purple Theatre explores the lives of a brother and sister in the aftermath of their father's death. This true family story of love and loss also touches on the subjects of race and gender in urban Britain. Original music score and choreography brings this multi disciplined piece of theatre to life.

Boxes are everywhere.

Toni and TJ are brother and sister.   

After their father dies, they are forced into a room together.

Suddenly their close proximity causes them to reveal groundshaking facts about themselves and their family.

The boxes they thought they fit nicely into are blown apart.

BOXES explores family, identity, race and gender in an urban post modern Britain.

With perfectly constructed original electronic music by Ross Allchurch and striking physical spectacles by Alleyne Dance, it is a multi disciplined slant on traditional theatre.

Purple Theatre are offering a Pay What You Can workshop at Coalville Library on the day of the show and a post show discussion with the cast, writer and director. Book your place on the workshop by emailing
