GUARDIANS by Peter Morris
"Gripping... utterly convincing... an exquisitely surreal tale" - Evening Standard, Aug '05
The indelible images of war: atrocities in Abu Ghraib prison, provocative forgeries in a British newspaper.
Critically acclaimed playwright Peter Morris – THE AGE OF CONSENT (“Dread-filled, funny, perceptive... a stunning evening”, The Independent), Marge (5 stars, The Scotsman) – dares to imagine the truth behind the images that shocked the world.
Commissioned by MahWaff. Premiered as part of MahWaff's Edinburgh doublebill with ANGRY YOUNG MAN by Ben Woolf. Previews at The Linbury Studio (LAMDA). Transferred to Theatre503 ('Britain's most important theatre' - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian). Played off-Broadway (The Culture Project) in April 2006.
A MahWaff world premiere produced by Katrin Macmillan
