Fire Exit: Horizontal Collaboration

Date: 20th Oct 2017

Location: Theatre

Time: 19:30

Sex, power and politics collide in this courtroom drama with a dark twist.

Horizontal Collaboration

Four steely UN lawyers read startling interview transcripts from their laptops in a tribunal concerning horizontal collaboration - the name for the supposed wartime crime of sex with enemy soldiers. The courtroom’s intense stillness contrasts with the volatile story around African warlord’s wife Judith K, who leads her people on a treacherous path towards peace… or does she? Can women ever have the freedom to lead in a different way from men?

From writer-director David Leddy, who is described as a “leading theatrical innovator” (Times), “institution” (Independent) and genius (Scotsman).

Shortlisted for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award.
