By Mike Bartlett


The UK's Prime Minister need to decide if she will join the US in invading Iran and starting a war in the process, or securing another term in office.

When John comes back from mysteriously disappearing a few years ago and starts preaching against war, he gains a big following that could sway the UK government's decision on the war against Iran.

Iranian British academic Amir wants his family to be safe, but his girlfriend Rachel isn't sure he is going about it the right way.

What do the dreams about the apocalypse have to do with all of this? And why do so many people in the UK have the exact same one, at the exact same time?


13 is a political drama that weaves seemingly small threads of personal stories into a tapestry of global politics. A complex play that deals with choices, war and peace, and doing the right thing versus the good thing.



Content warnings: Graphic discussions of war and death, suggestions of prostitution.
