OUTSIDE THE BOX – BIRMINGHAM 2022 FESTIVAL
FEATURING GOLD MEDALLIST JAMES WILLSTROP
Outside The Box is a celebration of the game of Squash. A cast of professional players, actors and school children bring the story of Squash to life on three glass-back courts, exploring its fascinating origins in a London prison to the mountains of Pakistan and beyond. The story of Squash mirrors the evolution of the Commonwealth, and Outside the Box playfully explores this journey, to engage family audiences.
This physically demanding sport is loved in countries the world over and Pakistani players in particular dominated Squash for decades. The show will pay tribute to their remarkable achievements, as well as uncovering the incredible struggles some went through, just to be able to play the game.
