How would you cope if you were directly affected by a terrorist attack? A question which has no doubt crossed the mind of anyone living, working or visiting London today. It may be something you already know the answer to. For playwright Stuart Slade it’s the subject matter of his award-nominated play, BU21, which transferred after a successful run at Theatre503 last year to Trafalgar Studios at the beginning of the year. A truly brave choice and one which Slade takes head on as he imagines the capital after another terrorist attack in which a passenger jet has devastated part of the city killing hundreds of people. The action takes place at a support group where six characters relay their personal stories. So far you’re thinking it sounds like a devastatingly sad show that might be a bit much for you at this time of year? Sure it may make you cry and feel scared, but it’ll also make you laugh, get angry and realise that there are some things in life you have no control over, so stop beating yourself up for all the mundane mistakes you made last year and get on with making a difference this year.
