On the twenty-fifth floor of a monstrous tower block Hector Blavatsky – visionary, architect and patriarch – dominates his family with godlike authority. Fearful of being tainted by the rest of humanity below, the Blavatsky's are in full retreat from the world. But Hector is dying. And when an outsider arrives in their miniature universe the family must finally consider flying the nest and joining ‘the crushed’ – but at what cost?
Blavatsky's Tower was first performed at the Lion and Unicorn, London, in April 1998.
