"Humanist political theatre at its finest" ─ OnStage, New York

medal iconBest Tragedy - Sanaa Theatre Awards, Kenya

A fearless spotlight on the global power struggle beyond the headlines

A British diplomat and his Somali kidnapper become locked in a battle of wills and worldviews over 88 days in an intensely rewarding exploration of idealism, extremism, religion and politics. Sometimes seeing eye to eye, sometimes needling and goading or ablaze with anger at the crossing of red lines, the duo engage in a series of heated debates and thought-provoking conversations that hurtle to the heart of cultural stereotyping and identity. As boundaries between hostage-taker and victim start to blur, the prejudices of the past begin to disappear...

In this award-winning Kenyan play, The Theatre Company maximises the dramatic power of the stage to humanise and rationalise different perspectives, providing an illuminating theatrical space to examine critical real-world issues.
