Silk Road (How to Buy Drugs Online) - 2018 - West End

£10.00

Meet Bruce Blakemore, a struggling young Geordie tech-head and the unlikeliest international criminal mastermind you can imagine. From his base in Whitley Bay, Bruce and his Nan will find themselves sucked into an Underworld Wide Web of new-age pirates, local gangsters and tea-cosies.



Join a host of unforgettable characters in this 5-star ‘rollercoaster of emotion’ (Broadway World) pitch-black comedy for the Bitcoin generation which ‘captures the sinister beauty of the anarchic dark web’ (West End Wilma)



Inspired by interviews with real online drug vendors, Alex Oates (BBC3, Eastenders E20, Old Vic New Voices) has written an urgent new piece about the freedoms and dangers of an unrestricted 'Dark-Web'.



Following critically acclaimed performances at the Vaults and making history in 2014 as the first show ever funded by the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, Silk Road stars Josh Barrow and is directed by Dominic Shaw.

As the first play to be funded by Bitcoin, the origins of Alex Oates' play Silk Road are as intriguing as the contents. For those who are unfamiliar with the name, Silk Road was the (now defunct) eBay of the dark web, where you could order any narcotic and have it delivered directly to your own door by an unsuspecting postman. Following an appeal on the forums of the real Silk Road for contributions towards the original production, an anonymous donor donated two Bitcoin that Oates reinvested to bring this captivating play to the Edinburgh Fringe and the Vault Festival in 2014. Now playing at the Trafalgar Studios, the play is as intense and absorbing as ever.
