Box of Tricks theatre company will be visiting Exeter Phoenix on Tuesday 26th November with award winning playwright Tom Morton-Smith’s compelling new play In Doggerland. Tom Morton-Smith, an award-winning playwright and former writer-in-residence at Paines Plough is currently under commission with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
In Doggerland tells the story of four people struggling to move forward under the weight of past trauma. The play explores what constitutes an individual, and looks at the themes of loss, grief, organ donation, family and home.
The production is the first national touring production for Manchester-based Box of Tricks, a new writing theatre company committed to developing and producing the best new work around and promoting the next generation of playwrights. Box of Tricks previously visited Exeter’s The Bikeshed Theatre when touring Head/Heart in 2011 and Word: Play in March.
