– 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 comitted to change by any means possible.

Royal Court [Off West End]

“Manages successfully to convey the self-aggrandising absurdity... Spells out its intentions too vociferously.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Abstracted, philosophical... Calderón taps into the inherent irrationality of terrorism... Doesn't quite go off.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Gently absurdist comedy... Kind of fascinating and often funny... I did wonder where exactly it was going... Great performances.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Swift, sharp comedy-drama... Startling, stylish and suspenseful... leaves you more dazed and rattled than enlightened.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“The magic realist touches of the play tend to push it into a more ironic territory, with the playwright remaining detached.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“A playful, opaque and hypothetical drama about bombs, terrorists and blowing people up seems out of place in the current climate”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)
