A black comedy about the post-9/11 world and what happens when someone else’s global problem becomes your local one.
If 9/11 changed everybody’s life forever, somebody forgot to tell Nigel. With his Xbox, his TV and his spliff, Nigel’s life seems as sweet as ever. Maverick cop Phil, however, has a covert mission to put Nigel back in touch with his estranged brother Karim, a suspected terrorist on the run.
Henry Adams’ play The People Next Door was first staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, during the 2003 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it won a Fringe First Award. It transferred to the Theatre Royal, Stratford East, in September 2003.
