Grenfell: in the words of survivors image

It was my safest place. It was home.
A powerful new verbatim play from the testimony of residents at the heart of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
Six years on, interviews conducted with a group of survivors and bereaved reveal the impact of the multiple failures that led to a national disaster, asking: how do we stop this ever happening again?
Created from these interviews by Gillian Slovo (Another World: Losing our Children to Islamic State), the play is co-directed by Phyllida Lloyd (The Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy) and Anthony Simpson-Pike (The P Word).
Startling and deeply moving, it explores the courage and resilience of an ill-treated community and their continued campaign for justice.
Grenfell: in the words of survivors is part of a multi-year programme of National Theatre creative activity in North Kensington, delivered in collaboration with local community organisations.
