Presented by Shifting Sands Theatre
Shifting Sands is a Derbyshire-based theatre company with roots in comedy and clowning, enjoyed by family audiences of mixed ages. They find comedy and rich emotions in everyday situations.
This comic package of warehouse life is set in a world of mounting economic catastrophes, with job security a thing of the past. Boxed In is a hilarious tragic comedy about the obsessions, fears and dreams of two warehouse workers.
Their daily routine of checking and moving boxes is boring and meaningless and their attempts to enliven their day become increasingly ridiculous and desperate. Dumbfounded when their warehouse world takes a tumble, they explore the absurdities of life with comic precision.
Boxed In is hilarious and moving in its celebration of dreams over drudgery. Imagine Buster Keaton directing Laurel and Hardy; add a dash of the absurd, flying saucers and boxes. Lots and lots of boxes!
