Hey you down there! Yes, you. Look up here, take a look up at the King. I could just crush you with this little finger, could squash you into the concrete, just like that”

Meet ‘The Bear’. A wealthy trader, a family man, a success story. But his world is about to come crashing down when he loses his job, his wife, his self\-respect. But he has plan, one that takes the tried and tested rules of the corporate finance world to the streets. Inspired by the true story of the infamous city trader who ran up the biggest loss in British banking history Dare To Do delves into the world of finance and its relationship with the world, and the people it owns.

Written by award-winning playwright Mark Norfolk, directed by Jeffrey Kissoon (The National / The Royal Shakespeare Company) and shortlisted for the Alfred Fagon Award, Dare To Do is the unmissable, untold story of the man who broke the city.

On Thursday the 31st of May a talkback will be held after the show with the man who inspired the whole play, Kweku Adoboli.
