SUMMARY

'Pornography' is Simon Stephens' stark and shattering play that captures a portrait of a fractured, insecure Britain.

Written in reaction to London crashing from the euphoria of being awarded the 2012 Olympics into the chaos and reality of the 7/7 bombings, the play is composed of seven stories that count down to the catastrophic attack on London. Stephens' gut-wrenching play was the first to confront the London bombings, and the simple setting, careful attention to detail and emotional performances set t...his production apart. When questioned on his outlook upon London and Britain, Stephens said: “People do often ask me why my plays are so bleak, what’s going on inside me. Actually, I find the process of writing for theatre innately optimistic. There’s an act of faith in it.”

Hild Bede Theatre promises another stunning performance, capturing the bleak and beautiful in equal measure.
