A topical play about terrorism and its aftermath. Inspired by Jo Berry, whose father was killed in the 1984 Brighton bomb and Patrick Magee who planted that bomb. In 2000, they met for the first time to promote understanding and conflict resolution. They have continued their dialogue ever since. At 16, she was shell-shocked and caught in the blast. Now the bomber's waiting on the other side of the door. The Bomb is a journey into the minds of two extraordinary people – one who destroys lives, the other who forgives the unforgivable.
