Value Engineering – Scenes From The Grenfell Inquiry

Value Engineering – Scenes From The Grenfell Inquiry

Performed at the apollo Theatre between 13 Oct, 2021 and 13 Nov, 2021

“The Grenfell fire did not happen in a vacuum… it happened within a pocket of one of the smallest yet richest boroughs in London.”
Leslie Thomas QC in evidence to the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry, July 2020

The dramatic evidence, based entirely on the words of those involved in the current Grenfell Tower Inquiry, is brought to the stage by the creative team responsible for the dramatisation of The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry – The Colour of Justice at the Tricycle Theatre, the National Theatre, in the West End and on BBC TV, and the Olivier Award-winning Saville Inquiry play Bloody Sunday.

“It’s one thing to work out how the fire was caused, and how the deaths were caused; the bigger question is: why did this happen?”
Michael Mansfield QC at the Inquiry, March 2021

Olivier Award-nominee Ron Cook (Mr Selfridge, The Witcher and The Salisbury Poisonings on TV, and Faith Healer and Girl from the North Country on stage) plays Richard Millett QC, counsel to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, leading a cast including Daniel Betts, Sam Buchanan, Derek Elroy, Sally Giles, Polly Kemp, Clare Lams, Phill Langhorne, Tim Lewis, David Michaels, David Robb, Howard Ward and Thomas Wheatley.
