The London riots of summer 2011 rocked the UK to its core. The events that took place are still at the forefront of discussion between the public and the government.

 

This verbatim and political performance builds a real-time picture of the riots as they unfolded, from tweets by taxi drivers, interviews with politicians, community leaders, victims, to moment-by-moment accounts by riot police.

 

The Riots is both an enthralling discussion and a powerful reminder of the anger boiling up in society today.
