Synopsis


A verbatim theatre piece about the fire at Grenfell Tower.


Kensington and Chelsea, one of the most affluent areas in the world, home to designer brands, famous flower shows and intense public carnivals fill the streets.


But it's also home to the biggest wealth divide in Britain.


Pockets of poverty clutter the expensive view from townhouses and cause the council too much trouble to care.


Does a tragedy have to cut through the wealth to see the humanity?


The Grenfell Project sensitively explores how it takes a loss of 72 lives and many more missing for people in London neighbourhoods to be heard.


Through beautiful physical expression, powerful spoken word and fearless verbatim theatre, audiences will experience more than a year on, the raw emotions surrounding the community of Grenfell.


Based on interviews from victims, firefighters, council workers and MPs, we shift through all the fake news and illegitimate claims to present you with the facts of how the residents of Grenfell were outrageously failed.


500 buildings are still covered in the main culprit.


Cladding. As flammable as cardboard, and as cheap.


Help us spread the cause and learn the facts. Support us in raising funds for charities such as Justice For Grenfell and Support 4 Grenfell by taking part in our collection at the end of our shows and telling your friends and family about these charities.
