Work out what you want and go for it with all your conviction and don't care if you seem outrageous or stupid. . . All that's needed, in the end, is belief.

An identical, terrifying dream haunts Londoners in the midst of economic gloom and ineffective protest. Whilst the prime minister considers a preventive war, a young man returns home with a vision for the future.

Coincidences, omens and visions collide with political reality in this epic new play from the writer of Earthquakes in London. Set in a dark and magical landscape, it depicts a London both familiar and strange, a London staring into the void.

In a year which has seen governments fall as the people take to the streets, 13 explores the meaning of personal responsibility, the hold that the past has over the future and the nature of belief itself.

An online, streamed production directed by Kash Arshad performed by the 2021 BA (Hons) Acting students at ALRA North.

This amateur production is broadcast by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
