“Boxman is an utterly riveting monologue... a profound meditation on the meaning of home...This is my pick of the Fringe by a country mile. If I could give it six stars, I would.” ★★★★★ BroadwayBaby
There are more than 60 million displaced people on our planet... people who have no home.
Ringo is one of them. He is a survivor, a child soldier displaced from his homeland, sheltering in a cardboard box in an inner city park. He lives in plain sight but is invisible to the city around him. But inside his makeshift ‘home’, Ringo lives a life rich with stories and songs of a childhood far away, a family tragically lost and the complicated promise of a new beginning.
‘Boxman’ uses storytelling, comedy and tears to challenge our understanding the idea of home in a way that responds to the crisis of displacement that the world faces, and celebrates the resilience of people who despite trauma must reframe their own sense of belonging.
