National Theatre puts spotlight on Brexit Britain

The National Theatre has embarked on a major project to tell the story of modern Britain following the vote to leave the European Union.

The theatre is conducting interviews about life in the UK with people in more than a dozen towns and cities.

That "massive verbatim archive" will then form the basis of future shows.

"We will attach a load of writers and theatre-makers to that and they will draw from that what they will," artistic director Rufus Norris said.

The National has already sent interviewers to Londonderry, Merthyr Tydfil, Leicester and Glasgow, and will canvas members of the public in 10-20 further locations from October.

"We've got to try to do what little we can to address the complete vote of no confidence in our system that that was," Norris said.

"I don't believe 17.5 million people are racists or idiots. I categorically don't. I think we've got to listen."
