MFA Theatre Directing
19:30 - 21:30
You can’t literally conceive of it happening to you. And then it does. It does happen to you. And nothing prepares you for how fierce it is.
'The play I have chosen to direct is BU21 by Stuart Slade, which follows the journey of six people in the aftermath of a recent terrorist attack on London.
In equal measure, BU21 is brutal, heartbreaking and hilarious in its depiction of how people deal with and manage sudden trauma.'
