Noughts & Crosses (NHB Modern Plays) (Dominic Cooke/RSC version)

Available

Description

An electrifying, bittersweet love story with echoes of Romeo and Juliet, set in a society divided by racial bigotry and a world rocked by terrorism. Adapted from Malorie Blackman's best-selling novels.

Sephy (a Cross) is the daughter of the Deputy Prime Minister. Callum is the son of a Nought agitator. United by a shared sense of injustice as children, and separated by intolerance as they grow up, their desire to be together begins to eclipse all family loyalty - sparking a political crisis of unimaginable proportions.

'I wanted to turn society as we know it on its head, with new names for the major divisions, i.e. Noughts (the underclass) and Crosses (the majority, ruling society)' - Malorie Blackman

Dominic Cooke's adaptation of Noughts & Crosses was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2007. It is now widely studied for GCSE.

An alternative adaptation of Noughts & Crosses, written by Sabrina Mahfouz and premiered by Pilot Theatre on tour around the UK in 2019, is also published by Nick Hern Books
