As some of you may know, I have written a play about the events leading up to the Grenfell Tower fire, which will be performed in two public readings at the Playground Theatre in Latimer Road next month. The play is a documentary play, and uses contemporary blogs, emails and Council records to place these events in the context of austerity, deregulation, estate regeneration and local activism. More details can be found by clicking here.
If you’d like to donate towards the production, there is a crowdfunding page here.
All the best, Nathaniel.
