846 Live is a co-production with Theatre Royal Stratford East and the Royal Docks Team in response to the murder of George Floyd on 25 May 2020.
This brutal murder ignited a global surge of anger and pain. From the Windrush scandal to the Grenfell Tower tragedy, racist oppression is very much alive in the UK.

In June 2020, Theatre Royal Stratford East worked with a group of Black and Asian writers, led by Roy Williams, to respond artistically to George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter Movement, creating an audio play 846 – a collection of standalone short pieces exploring racial inequality and oppression. The stories, all unique, span a breadth of themes and emotions, from tragic to angry, to frightening and even funny. Together they form a powerful tapestry of voices.
846 Live draws on those stories, bringing together a selection of the plays to form an arresting outdoor performance.
Please note that some of the plays contain strong language that some audience members may find upsetting. Recommended age guidance 14+
