Lightning Ensemble was commissioned to create a play for the tenth anniversary of website: London SE1.


SE1 inspired by a number of chatline threads on a community website in Southwark, was dramatised in the form of a party. The audience and real-life members of the forum rubbed shoulders with actors playing property developers, clerics and graffiti artists. Based on an idea and original script by Camilla McGibbon
