“I really loved Malorie Blackman’s Romeo and Juliet style novel about two teenagers who fall in love. Callum is a white nought who lacks both money and opportunity and Sophy is a black cross and a part of the ruling elite. The RSC staged a pretty decent production a number of years ago but this is a new version written by Sabrina Mahfouz and it arrives in London courtesy of Pilot Theatre.”

Tickets from £15


Sephy is a Cross and Callum is a Nought. Between Noughts and Crosses there are racial and social divides. A segregated society teeters on a volatile knife edge. As violence breaks out, Sephy and Callum draw closer, but this is a romance that will lead them into terrible danger.

This gripping Romeo and Juliet story by acclaimed writer Malorie Blackman and adapted by Sabrina Mahfouz is a captivating drama of love, revolution and what it means to grow up in a divided world.

Winner of Excellence in Touring, UK Theatre Awards 2019. Finalist for Best Show for Children and Young People, UK Theatre Awards 2019.

Age Recommendation: 12+
