In the days after the EU referendum last year, when 52% of British people voted for Brexit, the National Theatre began a nationwide listening project. A team of interviewers spoke to people around the country – from Leicester to Derry/Londonderry and Merthyr Tydfil to Glasgow – to hear their views of where and how they live: their opinions; their fears; their passions. Using exact words taken from the interviews, Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre, collaborates with Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, to put the people of Britain centre stage.
