On 4th August 2011, Mark Duggan was shot dead by police in Tottenham. Two days later riots broke out in London, spreading to cities across the country.

When the Government refused to conduct a Public Inquiry, The Tricycle Theatre launched their own – in the form of this verbatim play.  The Riots builds a compelling picture of the civil resentments, rage, violence and crime, followed by an equally gripping discussion on possible causes and remedies for this shocking series of events.
