    Written by Mike Bartlett
    Directed by David Mercatali

    We are delighted to welcome back the graduating students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School with Mike Bartlett’s powerful, profound and epic play, 13.

    Different lives become woven together in a politically uncertain world that’s yearning for change.

    One morning, twelve complete strangers across London wake up from an identical, terrifying dream, full of monsters, explosions and thousands of voices.

    Enter John, a Christ-like figure, a firebrand who can whip up crowds and persuade them to action. But with what consequences?

    Set in a dark and magical landscape, 13 depicts a Britain both familiar and strange – a Britain staring into the void. First performed to great critical acclaim in 2011 at the National Theatre, this play has even more resonance today than it did then. It is a play that needs to be seen.

    “Work out what you want and go for it with all your conviction and don’t care if you seem outrageous or stupid… All that’s needed, in the end, is belief.”
