About Grenfell: in the words of survivors

This powerful new verbatim play, from true survivor stories of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, makes its New York debut direct from London's National Theatre.

The hundreds of residents of West London’s Grenfell Tower had their origins in the Caribbean, Portugal, Syria, Morocco, Ethiopia, Britain, and more: a thriving community of communities immediately familiar to any New Yorker. They protested loudly for years as their mismanaged public housing fell into disrepair. When the building went up in flames in 2017, there was no shock, only horror. In the end, 72 lives would be lost.

Grenfell: in the words of survivors offers a compelling investigation into the catastrophe, driven by the survivors’ stories, their heroic acts, and their impassioned struggle for justice.

Masterful, Intelligent, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if A smart,tight,informative,moving play abt a community that cared x 1 another before&after a lousy fire that killed 71ppl in London in 2017.*

Don’t see it if Three hours may be too long x some but they go fast. Also, the production looks simple because it is so perfect.

Riveting, Relevant, Profound, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you are concerned about cash grabbing corporations destroying the lives of people or the red tape that prevents measures to be taken.

Don’t see it if you cannot listen to the painful stories of survivors. Lots of head turning when the well-projecting actors spoke from different stage ends.

Tragic, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Disturbing

See it if intense, compelling act 2 with residents escaping from the fire. Detailed & unforgettable analysis of the causes. Immersive epilogue.

Don’t see it if Social justice call to action is laid on thick. At times the show is more presentation than play. 3 hours.
