WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

'Was it ever our choice to be the parish church of high finance?' On 15 October 2011 Occupy London makes camp outside St Paul's Cathedral. On 21 October 2011 a building that had kept open through floods, the Blitz and terrorist threats closes its doors. On 28 October City of London initiates legal action against Occupy to begin removing them from outside the Cathedral... Steve Waters' new play is a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis - a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith.

Temple is a fictional account, inspired by the Occupy London movement in 2011.
