Theatre presented by 2 Magpies:
Put your feet in the sand. Hear the pulse of music in the distance. Take a sip of your cocktail. Welcome to a tropical paradise where your every sense is catered for. Welcome to Last Resort.
Having taken on doping scandals and state-sponsored assassination, 2Magpies Theatre turn their attention in Last Resort to Guantanamo Bay, exploring the imagined future of a deeply troubling past
Last Resort is an all-inclusive package holiday in a former detention centre. It is a multi-sensory theatrical experience influenced by the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ – torture, to you and me – in the infamous Guantanamo Bay detention centre. Expect deckchairs, sandpits, cocktails and more.
How do we deal with terror suspects? How far would and should we go to protect ourselves from attack? And can we conceal the scars left on a tropical paradise after the waterboarding has stopped?
