Pornography
by Simon Stephens, 26-30 January 2016

One week in July 2005. London feels like the centre of the world.

Pornography is the stark and shattering play by Simon Stephens that captures Britain as it crashes from the euphoria and promise of the 2012 Olympics announcement into the devastation of 7/7.

Written in reaction to the events that occurred that fatal day, Pornography offers a kaleidoscopic view of London through 7 different seemingly unrelated stories, from an angry racist teenager besotted with his teacher, to a pair of siblings that enter into an incestuous relationship, and eventually one of the bombers himself on his final journey.

“Stephens observes his characters with an almost forensic detachment and yet he makes us love them too. A play of grace and terror.” The Guardian.



Reviews


"Punchy and emotionally draining...a challenging and provocative evening that will stick in your memory for all the right reasons." ****
Remote Goat

"A smorgasbord of scenes performed with both subtlety and passion. Not always comfortable viewing, but a fascinating play." ****
London Theatre 1

"Sedos are one of the countries best amateur dramatic groups.... I do admire how versatile Sedos can be from stunning productions of musicals...to clever and infrequently performed plays such as Pornography."
