SLAMinutes asks can we live in London: can we afford it, can we survive, can we make it? What chance does London stand us: all of us? How is that impacted by our social status, our background, our colour, our gender, our sexuality?
Is our struggle to succeed in it, to be seen in it actually what unifies us in all of that?
Is London now just the empty city, the expensive city, the city so crammed that it is too full to be filled with promised opportunity, are we overborne by tall grey buildings we will never be able to mortgage? Or is it a place we can achieve, we can dream, the only place to make our work work? The place where we meet people, all people and where we see new things. After all, a rat race is at least something that can be won?
THIS ONE-OFF PRODUCTION WILL BE PERFORMED ON THE SET OF Not Talking by Mike Bartlett, DESIGNED Amy Cook, AND DIRECTED BY James Hillier. UNTIL 2nd June 2018.
