Noughts and Crosses

Tuesday 21th - Saturday 25th February

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


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

Noughts & Crosses is a book which leaps from the page into every reader’s heart. It is a book Malorie Blackman was “advised” not to write. Thank the skies she did it anyway! And here we are over 20 years later, with a new theatre adaptation and a television series of the story.

(The story has at its centre) Sephy and Callum – these two flawed, fantastic, brave, young people – in love, lost, full of hope and rage, dreams and desires, challenging a supremacist system just by being their complicated selves. It was a huge honour to adapt such an epic, important, adored book.” –Sabrina Mahfouz, Adapter.
