Stuart Slade’s BU21 follows six Londoners in the aftermath of a fictitious terrorist attack. In turn terrifying, inspiring, brutal, heart-breaking and hilarious, this is verbatim theatre from the very near future.

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. 

With its disquieting honesty, Slade’s play could not be more topical, looking at the shadow of terrorism that overhangs our everyday lives.
