Why did last summer's riots happen?
This unflinching and poetic play tells the story of five very different people, and suggests some answers... From the politician's heartfelt plea for law enforcement and the angry youth's lament for rapidly reducing local services, to a young girl's sad solace in objectification, an impassioned and self-assured rant from an angry policeman and the far-right musings of an ostensibly respectable, high-ranking member of society, this is a clash of the misunderstandings in society that enabled fear - and the riots - to breed.
Instead of focussing on the carnage, this is about the people - the participants, observers and commentators.
This is for the people who rioted and the people who didn't.
