BU21 - 2017 - West End

£45 - £50

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.
