Boxed In

26th Feb 2013 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Shifting Sands Theatre Company present Boxed In at the Rose Theatre. The humdrum turns into the hilarious in this warehouse tale where time served knowledge versus academic ambition.

Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions / £5 Edge Hill students

A warehouse. Two workers. Boxes. Lots of boxes.

Ralph works in the
warehouse. He loves his job. He prides himself on it. Before he retires he wants to pass on all he
knows to the “new boy”. But he’s in for
a shock.

The “new boy” turns out to
be Kate – a young woman with a degree in International Distribution
Logistics. Ambitious, she has her sights
set far higher than his. She knows she
is going places.

Shifting Sands, deftly
turns the humdrum into the hilarious, creating an intensely funny show that
will have the audience rocking in their seats. Yet this is not just light comedy. As
the warehouse world totters and collapses Kate and Ralph find themselves on a
roller coaster ride where the absurdity of life is explored with comic
precision and Ralph discovers The Philosophy of Boxes.
