PlayBox Takeover

Box of Tricks returns to HOME for a day-long takeover at Push Festival 2020 showcasing new plays from our current PlayBox playwrights and connecting with local writers and theatremakers.

PlayBox is a year-long writer-on-attachment programme with Box of Tricks offering bespoke residencies and support to three early career North West playwrights. This year’s takeover features Keisha Thompson, Nana-Kofi Kufuor and Billie Collins.

Box of Tricks is a Manchester-based theatre company that champions the next generation of playwrights, producing top quality new plays on local and national stages.
