"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, based on the young adult novel 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.
Schools workshops and free online learning resources will be available alongside this production.
Noughts and Crosses follows Pilot Theatre’s acclaimed production of Brighton Rock:
