"The most eagerly awaited play at the National this year… It does not disappoint." Aleks Sierx, The Stage
Set in contemporary times with a female British prime minister who supports America’s war with Iran, the play has a dark and nightmarish feel from the onset. From the pen of Mike Bartlett, writer of Earthquakes in London comes the epic new play 13. Set against a familiar yet magical London landscape of singing pensioners, fanatics and an impending apocalypse, it depicts a city staring into an abyss. In a year which has seen many governments topple and hundreds of thousands protesting again tyrannical regimes, 13 explores the meaning of personal responsibility, the hold that the past has over the future and the nature of belief itself.
