Inside This Box

28 February 2020 – 9 July 2020

Inside this box is the first time I ever rode a bike. Pink with tassels… Inside this box are books, a red dress or my sister’s laugh.

Or maybe they aren't. Maybe its organs, government secrets, money or something else.

A young woman has been asked to take a mysterious box to a secret location. She’s been trusted to do it, a real responsibility that will bring in real money for her and her sister. All she has to do is take a train to a meeting point. But now the location has changed, she doesn’t know who she’s meeting, her phone is on 38% and every step is filling her with more doubt.

"How do you know if you’re doing the right thing?"

Inside this Box is a new short play written by Yasmin Joseph, directed by Stef O’Driscoll and performed by Clean Break’s Young Artists about young women, the criminal justice system and trying to imagine another way.

The production was recorded and edited by Eastside Educational Trust's Film Crew. Eastside's Young Filmmakers are part of an initiative which aims to create professional film and editing opportunities for young people aged 18-25. 

Inside this Box was created as part of the Co-Op Foundation funded Youth Loneliness Project.
