Why See Square, Go?
Brits Off Broadway
Max and Stevie are targeted by bullies at school; their playground is a constant battlefield and becomes a wrestling ring as they prepare to take a beating.
Packed with brilliant schoolboy banter and adolescent angst, it looks at the insecurities and self-doubt of youth that we, as adults, can only see through hindsight. The play takes us to the toilets, where Max and Stevie are hiding out ahead of Max's impending fight - his square go - with the school's toughest tough guy, Danny. Then, as we move closer to the fight, the audience is encouraged to become part of the action, cheering their names as they square off against each other.
Sad one moment, and laugh-out-loud funny the next, it's no surprise that the play received rave reviews when it premiered at Edinburgh's famous Fringe Festival last year.
Written by Kieran Hurley and Gary McNair.
Opening night: 5 June 2019

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
