“Humanist political theatre at its best” ─ OnStage, New York
Greatest Tragedy – Sanaa Theatre Awards, Kenya

A fearless highlight on the worldwide energy battle past the headlines

A British diplomat and his Somali kidnapper grow to be locked in a battle of wills and worldviews over 88 days in an intensely rewarding exploration of idealism, extremism, faith and politics. Typically seeing eye to eye, typically needling and goading or ablaze with anger on the crossing of pink strains, the duo interact in a collection of heated debates and thought-provoking conversations that hurtle to the guts of cultural stereotyping and id. As boundaries between hostage-taker and sufferer begin to blur, the prejudices of the previous start to vanish…

On this award-winning Kenyan play, The Theatre Firm maximises the dramatic energy of the stage to humanise and rationalise totally different views, offering an illuminating theatrical house to look at vital real-world points.
