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 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.


Following a year in which populism has taken to the streets, and political order has never seemed more uncertain, 13 explores the meaning of personal responsibility, the hold that the past has over the future and the nature of belief itself.
