Check out photos for Grenfell: System Failure, which will tour to three West London venues: The Playground Theatre (18 February – 25 February), The Tabernacle (27 February – 12 March) and Marylebone Theatre (14 March – 26 March).

Grenfell: System Failure asks further vital questions raised at the Grenfell Tower Inquiry since the critically acclaimed 2021 play Grenfell: Value Engineering, which was in The Telegraph's 100 best cultural events of 2021, and the Observer's top 10 productions of 2021.

Richard Norton-Taylor and Nicholas Kent have fashioned a play from statements at the Grenfell Inquiry that leads a horrified audience to specific and more general conclusions and the siren call that 'this must never happen again'.

Casting is announced for the not-for-profit production of Grenfell: Value Engineering – Scenes from The Inquiry, which will run at the recently renovated Tabernacle in Notting Hill from 13 October - 13 November and Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 16 - 20 November.
