SILK ROAD written by Alex Oates

Alex Oates’ play, SILK ROAD opens at Trafalgar Studios on 7th August and runs until 1st September.

Meet Bruce Blakemore, a struggling young Geordie tech-head and the unlikeliest international criminal mastermind you can imagine. From his base in Whitley Bay, Bruce and his Nan will find themselves sucked into an Underworld Wide Web of new-age pirates, local gangsters and tea-cosies.

Inspired by interviews with real online drug venders, SILK ROAD made history in 2014 as the first show ever funded by cryptocurrency Bitcoin, and was critically acclaimed in performances at the Vaults.
