A SOLO performance set to engage and captivate audiences will run for one day only at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.
Boxman follows one man's journey through the hardships of homelessness and ostracism but finding, above all, hope.
Played by Ghanaian-born Terry Yeboah, now from Melbourne, the entire performance is played from the confines of one man's box.
He plays Ringo, a war survivor who was displaced from his African homeland and disconnected from his new home.
Using things discarded by others, he makes himself a home in a park.
The box signifies his home and all his possessions.
Mr Yeboah said although the story wasn't entirely based on his life, many scenes were relevant to it.
"The character I play could be anyone who's ever found themselves in a desperate situation," he said.
"Through the troubles of being a new refugee in a foreign land or having no home or living through war and desperation."
Mr Yeboah said he was born in 1983 during the worst famine in Africa.
"I was fortunate to lead a relatively privileged life back in Ghana but even at 9 I remember going home to my mother and seeing all my friends go home to abuse and destruction," he said.
"I was saved from having to live through it but I witnessed it.
"Performing this play on stage helps me convey some of those experiences."
Mr Yeboah said his favourite part of the play was the moment the box opened.
"Throughout this performance the box is my supporting actor. It's up there with me and you don't realise how daunting it is to be in a solo show and how much you rely on your writers and actors until you're up there alone," he said.
"For the first 30 minutes the box is closed but when it opens it gives light to some amazing things — it's a new world."
The Boxman has a matinee and an evening show on Thursday, March 28.
