“But don’t say that word.”

“What word?”

“The word that starts with B.”

Alejandra and Marcela are planting bombs in the middle of the night.

They don’t want violence. They just want to be heard. Prison’s not much of a threat when most of your friends are inside.

But José Miguel is from another generation, and he’s committed to change by any means possible.

‘We used to kill kings. We used to kill millionaires. And now all we do is make threats on the Internet. That’s why I’m offering you the chance to start a war.’

Acclaimed Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderón makes his Royal Court debut with the world premiere of his play B, written on a residency with the International Department. B is presented as part of International Playwrights: a Genesis Foundation Project. It will be directed by Royal Court Associate Director (International) Sam Pritchard.

“The Chilean-born writer and director Guillermo Calderón is an authentic genius of the theatre.” The New Yorker
