Come Out Eli

Alecky Blythe

Hackney, Christmas 2002 saw the longest siege in British history. For 16 days, the locals spoke of little else. From gunshots to bankruptcy, Boxing Day to judgment day.

Policemen, pensioners, a politician and a publican are among those brought together to tell the twisted tale.

Recorded Delivery brings to life the story as it happened, recreating the drama five minutes from the scene of the crime itself.

The story of the Hackney siege told by 47 characters in 72 minutes and 3 seconds… approximately.
