Last year, before the news on cryptocurrencies boom at the end of 2017, “Silk Road: How To Buy Drugs Online” play appeared in the UK and grew in popularity faster than expected. The story about deep web and Bitcoin, a play funded entirely with Bitcoin (BTC), now reached the renowned Trafalgar Studios in London, UK.
The play is written by Alex Oates and tells the story of a 19-year-old teenager, Bruce Blakemore, who found out about darknet markets and deep web and emerged into this world.
The “Silk Road: How To Buy Drugs Online” play, which is said to be based on the Dread Pirate Roberts (DPR) tales and real interviews with Silk Road dealers, got positive feedback from both the audience and the critics.
“Like a hybrid of ‘Snatch’ and ‘Starter for Ten,’ this is both an adolescent adventure and a grotesque, criminal caper. Gritty and very well written by Old Vic New Voices playwright Alex Oates, ‘Silk Road’ is the best thing to come from its namesake,” read a review on Three Weeks.

The increase and popularity and the positive reviews helped the “Silk Road: How To Buy Drugs Online” play to reach the London’s famous Trafalgar Studios where the first representation will be on August 7th.
The last representation of the play will take place on September 1st.
“Back in 2014, Bitcoin (BTC) was a bit of a novelty so I couldn’t be more thrilled that ‘Silk Road: How To Buy Drugs Online,’ which was initially made possible through an anonymous donation of Bitcoin (BTC), is back with a run at Trafalgar Studios this summer,” affirmed Alex Oates.
