Stuart Slade’s BU21 receives a limited West End run at Trafalgar Studio Two.
Transferring after a sell-out run at Theatre503, Stuart Slade’s BU21 follows six Londoners in the aftermath of a terrorist attack.
By turns terrifying, inspiring, brutal, heart breaking and hilarious, BU21 is verbatim theatre from the very near future.
Based on real testimonies gathered from a variety of terrorist incidents including the 7/7bombings, 9/11, the Paris attacks and the 2013 Westgate shopping mall attack, Slade’s BU21 is terrifyingly credible.
BU21 runs from 5 January 2017 until 16 February 2017 at Trafalgar Studio Two.
Every night on the news there’s literally always some sort of massively catastrophic end-of-the-world shit going down: genocide, earthquake, terrorism, school shooting – it’s endless, you know?
And I always wonder ‘how would I cope, if that happened to me?’
A beautiful sunny morning in London, planes leaving vapour trails across a cloudless sky. Then a sudden flash of light and, for thousands of people across the capital, everything changes forever.
Here, six survivors come together in a support group to tell their stories – what they witnessed on the day and how this has affected their lives.
