The rise and fall of Silk Road at the beginning of the decade was a sign of the new ways in which the trade of illegal drugs was being implemented in the 21st century, making it easier for criminals to keep such trade alive and providing a new challenge for law enforcement.
It was also a way in which unlikely people could become embroiled in a completely different world, which is the focus of the play Silk Road (How To Buy Drugs Online) by Alex Oates, which heads to the Trafalgar Studios 2 this summer following its successful debuts at the Assembly Studios and Vaults Festival.
In Silk Road (How To Buy Drugs Online) we meet the character of Bruce Blakemore, who lives in Whitley Bay in the North East of England. He is a down-on-his-luck computer technician who soon discovers a new way of making money that would shock those around him – by selling drugs online. But this decision means he is embroiled in a dark world of shady people and great risk.
Writer Alex Oates has found great success with Silk Road (How To Buy Drugs Online), which is one of many of his productions to find an audience. His other credits include Mutations, Rules For Being A Man and All In A Row, amongst a host of others.
But audiences can catch Silk Road (How To Buy Drugs Online) as it runs a the Trafalgar Studios 2 from Tuesday 7th August 2018.
