Little Revolution, Paperback / softback Book


An explosive verbatim play about the 2011 London Riots, by the author of the award-winning London Road.

In the summer of 2011, London was burning. Alecky Blythe took her Dictaphone to the streets. From the helicopters circling overhead to the burnt-out buildings on the street, Little Revolution records the voices and stories of a community from when the riots happened up to their present-day aftermath.

Little Revolution premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, in August 2014.

Alecky Blythe is a playwright and pioneer of verbatim theatre.

Her plays have been staged at the National Theatre, Arcola and the Royal Court Theatre among others. 'absolutely compelling' - Telegraph 'Alecky Blythe's work is a gold thread running through the theatre of the past decade... [Little Revolution] is needling, comic and sceptical... terrific' - Observer
