Burton Taylor Studio 2nd Week Michaelmas 18th - 22nd October 7.30pm TICKETS
One week in July 2005. Live 8. G8. London 2012 Olympics. 7/7.
It's July 2005 and Britain feels like the centre of the world. Big events are happening and everyone is talking about them. In schools, offices, streets, shops, parks and homes - there's a buzz in the air. The world's eyes are focused on us and you can feel the energy and possibilities.
In less than an hour in central London, everything will change. 'Pornography' is the stark and shattering new play by Simon Stephens that captures Britain as it crashes from the euphoria and promise of the 2012 Olympics announcement into the devastation of 7/7.
'The most shocking play of the Edinburgh Festival' - Telegraph
'Stephens has come up with another cracker - one that searches for new forms to say new things... This is a play of grace and terror.' - Guardian
