We’ve always been here. People like us made this city what it is.
In a new production commissioned by the Finborough Theatre and originally seen as a staged reading as part of Vibrant – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights 2013, the world premiere of We Know Where You Live by Steven Hevey, the award-winning Playwright-on-Attachment at the Finborough Theatre.
In a city buckling under the weight of a severe housing crisis, Ben and Asma have discovered a borough of London they can finally call their home. However, with its earthy character and village feel, it isn’t long before this hidden gem soon becomes the prime location for every other trendy urbanite in the city.
As they find themselves under siege from a brutal wave of gentrification, powerless to stop the many charms that had attracted them to the area from being erased, Ben and Asma reach out to the local community for support, but start to question whether or not the damage has already been done.
A timely and important play about the changing face of London.
