A one act play, ‘Under London’ explores the emotional complexity of a group of construction workers, on the tracks of the London Underground following the death of a former colleague, ‘Guy’. Set in 2009, four years after the 7/7 bombings and during preparation for the Olympics, the play is a reflection on the fast-paced confusion of London. And the distance explored between characters, reflects the isolation of the individual in a busy city which never stops, even after threat and tragedy. The toxic masculinity evident in this working environment is explored not only through male characters, but also through how the female characters conform to a highly testosterone-driven atmosphere.
