Noughts & Crosses

Tue 26 February - Sat 2 March 2019

“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 acclaimed 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.

By Malorie Blackman

Directed by Esther Richardson
Co-produced by Derby Theatre, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, Mercury Theatre Colchester and York Theatre Royal
