Noughts and Crosses

SUMMARY

Reminiscent of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Noughts & Crosses is a modern-day tale of star-crossed lovers set in a alternative world where you are either a 'Cross' with dark skin or a 'nought' (never with a capital N) with white skin, and violence ensues when the two try to mix.

Using the celebrated RSC script, we follow the love story of Sephy and Callum, two young people kept apart by bigotry, terrorism and injustice. Sephy is a Prime Minister's daughter from the powerful Crosses who falls for rebel Callum, son of a dangerous nought agitator. Their desire to be together threatens family loyalties and sparks a growing political crisis.
