The unmissable, Fringe First Award-winning show from Kieran Hurley and Gary McNair, featuring an original soundtrack by members of Frightened Rabbit.
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 a ‘square go’, a fight by the school gates, he must wrestle with his own demons first.
A raucous, hilarious play about playground violence, myths of masculinity and the decision to step up or run. After a sell-out at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe and an off-Broadway premiere this summer, Square Go is on UK tour this autumn.
