At the end of January, Box of Tricks proudly presents the world première of RURAL , the powerful new play by Kenny Emson, directed by Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder .


Kenny Emson

White Bear Theatre

30th January - 18th February 2007
Director: Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder “I think I can see people jumping…From the towers, the buildings. Look closely, the black dots…Falling down like leaves, without a care in the world…They look like they know they're alive. They've made their choice.”

The cities burn.  The people flee.  Jim and Robert ‘ghost' their way through the country manors, waiting for Gas to call.  Just two more houses before the coast.  Just two more stops and they're free.  But when Annie discovers them in their latest retreat, things spiral out of control, and decisions must be made.    A play for today, Rural casts a long shadow across its bloody landscape into our own.  Both personal and political, the play explores the importance of choice and freedom in a world void of either.

“complex and profound… an impressive and original piece of writing”

Abigail Gonda, Literary Manager at The Bush, on Kenny Emson

Two estranged brothers are recalled to their family home by their dying father, only to discover it has been taken over by his male nurse.  As the brothers navigate their father's final manipulative moments, each must reconcile himself to his own version of the past.

FINAL WORD The new year promises to be incredibly exciting year for Box of Tricks .  Continuing our associateship at the White Bear with new readings at  NEW TRICKS , the full production of RURAL and yet another new production in April (to be announced in the new year), 2007 is a box full of tricks!  We hope you'll join us along the way.

All the best,
Adam & Hannah Box of Tricks Theatre
