Between 2011 and 2013 an online black market for selling illegal drugs was created in the US and quickly provided a new location in which users could purchase substances anonymously. It demonstrated the changing parameters of criminals and the difficulties of law enforcement in the modern world.

When the site’s founder Ross Ulbricht was arrested and the site shut down, writer Alex Oates decided to put together this play that looks at others involved in the trade, including an unlikely computer technician and his grandmother. The play, Silk Road, was first staged in 2014 and eventually made it to the Vault Festival, now leading to this West End production in 2018.

The story, set in Whitley Bay in the North East of England, focuses on the character of Bruce Blakemore, the mentioned technician who is down on his luck and soon finds a new way of making money that would surprise those that know him. The world of online drug-selling soon becomes lucrative and his life spirals out of control thanks to the new people in his world.

Alex Oates’ play was funded by Bitcoin and was one of many plays that have cemented him as an exciting young voice in the world of theatre. His other shows include All In A Row, Mutations and Rules For Being A Man, amongst others. These shows and others have appeared in London and beyond.

Now Silk Road (How To Buy Drugs Online) runs at the Trafalgar Studios 2 from Tuesday 7th August 2018.
