An unscrupulous landlord lets the same flat to two different men: Cox who is out at work all day, and Box who is out at work all night. When Cox is unexpectedly given the day off and the two men discover each other, the landlord’s scheme falls apart. But when the lodgers realise that they have something in common, will they forget their quarrel?

After winning the prestigious Bobby Award last year, we are excited to be presenting another of Sullivan's musical comedies, Cox & Box, in this ambitious production for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
