This production began performances on 23rd June and closed on 4th September 2004.
The British theatre - indeed every Briton - should be proud of this play.
Without raising its voice, the show leaves you shocked.
After the groundbreaking The Colour of Justice (Stephen Lawrence Inquiry) and last year's Justifying War (The Hutton Inquiry), GUANTANAMO ‘Honor Bound to Defend Freedom’ a new piece of documentary theatre from the Tricycle Theatre using personal testimony from British detainees, their families and their lawyers.
A must-see piece of theatre.
