Marnie is stuck in a women’s refuge, trying to escape toxic relationship patterns, just wanting to do the best for herself and her daughter. But how do you get out of a rut when everyone you know is a liability?

Box Clever is a moving, truthful and darkly comic play, which premiered at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe in a production by nabokov and The Marlowe, Canterbury, in Paines Plough’s pop-up theatre, Roundabout.

‘Monsay Whitney is a writer of ferocious honesty, rare imagination and extraordinary humanity. She has the potential to become a startling and significant figure in British Theatre’ Simon Stephens

‘Ever had the feeling you’re going round in one big circle? It’s like I can’t stop recycling my ex-boyfriends. Ten years back and forth between a trio of arseholes and nothing to show for it except a baby, an Argos ring and a beat-up nose.’

Press Quotes

'A work of ferocious honesty and seething anger'

The Arts Desk

'Packs a real punch… an all too believable story about society’s underclass today'

British Theatre Guide

'[Has] the compassionate anger of a Ken Loach film… a superb piece of writing, bubbling with bitterness yet bursting with heart, simultaneously funny and infuriating'
