About the show

Explosive new play B by Guillermo Calderón at the Royal Court Theatre.

Royal Court Theatre presents the world premiere of B by Guillermo Calderón. The compelling new work marks the Royal Court Theatre debut of the critically acclaimed Chilean playwright. Sam Pritchard, Associate Director (international) at Royal Court Theatre, directs the show.

B focuses on Alejandra and Marcela, two young people planting bombs in the middle of the night. The pair don’t court violence, but they desperately want their voices heard. With friends already in prison, they aren’t all that scared of being locked up either.

When they cross paths with José Miguel, they set a series of events in motion. A generation apart from Alejandra and Marcela, José Miguel is as committed as ever to instigating dramatic change. He feels that the younger generation are less focused on real change and more on sounding off on the Internet. Now it is his chance to suggest something big…

Game Of Thrones actor Paul Kaye stars in the production alongside Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Danusia Samal and Sarah Niles.

Calderón’s previous work includes Kiss, Escuela, Neva, Quake and the film Violeta Went To Heaven. That film won the International Federation of Film Critics Prize for Best Film.

London’s Royal Court Theatre in Sloane Square is renowned for nurturing new writers and also staging the best new plays. They stage B as part of the theatre’s International Playwrights: a Genesis Foundation Project. Calderón wrote the play whilst on residency with the Royal Court’s International Department.

B is running in rep with another new play, Victory Condition, by Chris Thorpe at the Royal Court.

Suitable for ages 14 and over.

B runs from 28 September – 21 October 2017 at the Royal Court Theatre.
