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?'
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.
'Intelligent, questioning and very funny' The Stage *****
'When did you ever see a terror-plot rom-com? BU21 dares you to laugh - because if you can't laugh, right, the terrorists have won. Haven't they? ...a theatrical joyride' WhatsOnStage ****
