By Mark Ravenhill. Directed by Linda Taylor.
In Ravenhill’s challenging cycle of plays, ‘good and decent’ British people come face to face with the fears and atrocities associated with the war on terror. Characters from war-torn landscapes appear in British domestic settings while middle-class citizens find themselves hostage in enemy territories. As the SUVs, smoothie makers and garden benches are pushed aside for headless soldiers, suicide bombers and images of torture we ask: can lives and values remain intact in such encounters and, if so, at what cost?
