Direct from its smash-hit, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Festival comes the New York premiere of the Fringe First Award-winning SQUARE GO.
Max is a normal-ish kid in a normal-ish town. He spends his days daydreaming and hanging out with his weird wee pal Stevie Nimmo. But when Max is called for his first square go, a fight by the school gates, it’s his own demons he must wrestle with first.
An unmissable collaboration between award-winning writers Kieran Hurley and Gary McNair (A Gambler’s Guide to Dying, Brits Off Broadway 2017), with an original soundtrack by members of Frightened Rabbit. SQUARE GO is a raucous and hilarious new play about playground violence, myths of masculinity, and the decision to step up or run.

She is the original producer of the multi-award-winning and Olivier nominated FLEABAG and is also the former Producer of British New-Writing theatre company Paines Plough.
