Britain Riots Onstage

November 24, 2011 - 12:10 PM
In this undated but recently taken image released Thursday, Nov. 24, 2011, by the Tricycle Theatre in London, actors perform a scene from "The Riots" play by Gillian Slovo. "The Riots," which opened this week, vividly recreates the mayhem that raged for four nights in August through the testimony of real people _ residents, police, politicians, community workers and the rioters themselves. The riots were triggered by the fatal police shooting, in disputed circumstances, of 29-year-old Mark Duggan in the working-class London district of Tottenham on Aug. 4.
