Why See B?
The Word That Starts With B
Today's society is charged with anger; the use of social media, online petitions, and marches of protest are depended on in order to bring change, but is that enough? Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderon's play B comes to the Royal Court in an English version translated by William Gregory.
B focuses on Alejandra and Marcela who are desperate for their voices to be heard. Their resolution for this is planting bombs; not for violence but for change. With their friends already in prison, being locked up isn't a threat to them so no fear is felt when actions are committed. When they cross paths with someone who is a generation apart from them, they see this as an opportunity. Jose Miguel is a man who lived when revolution was thriving and activism alive. He is one who believes that the younger generation are more into hiding behind the internet and expecting change rather than going out of their way.
Were their paths destined to meet, does Miguel have the chance to suggest something big to Marcela and Alejandra? Can their 'change' become a reality? Their's only one way to find out...
