WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
1984. The height of Thatcher's power. 30lbs of gelignite rip through 6 floors of the Grand Hotel Brighton, shattering the Tory conference. The most shocking attack on the British Government since Guy Fawkes. This visceral new history play tells the story of the unlikely relationship between Pat Magee, who planted the bomb, and Jo Berry, whose father was killed in the blast. It asks if violence plays an inevitable part in the journey from civil conflict towards peace.
