“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
“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
Grenfell: Value Engineering – Scenes From The Inquiry sets out to discover why the devastating fire of 14 June 2017 happened after the refurbishment of Grenfell Tower, and who was responsible for the deaths of 72 people.
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 Colour of Justice – The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry 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.
