In arguably the most challenging production seen at the festival so far, Boxman is a one-man show. 45 minutes focussed around Ringo (Reice Weathers), a homeless man fled from his war-stricken country to live on the streets, a favourable and more affluent alternative to forced militia. His home has no walls, but similarly provides safety and protection from the uncertainty of the outside world. He regresses to a child-like state, talking to a shadow and a torch that act as his inner conscious, his spirit guide to process the events that have unfolded. But this is a show is which a lot of storytelling happens, yet lacks enough accompanying changes in production to emphasise each point.
