About Lidless

A new play by Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig
Winner 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe First Award
Fifteen years ago, Alice was an interrogator in Guantanamo Bay. The pills she took mean she can’t remember what she did.
Fifteen years ago, Bashir was a prisoner there.
Now he pays her a visit.
Lidless, Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig's devastating first play, won the Yale Drama Series Award for Play-writing in 2009. A work of extraordinary intelligence and finely-balanced sensibility, it marries the implacable logic of a Greek tragedy with an all-too-modern setting.
* * * * * 'If Henrik Ibsen had been alive in the era of Guantanamo, he'd surely have written a play every bit as scintillating as Lidless' The Scotsman
'Lidless is an extraordinary and original attempt to show the enduring strain on the victims of the U.S.'s deployment of torture at Guantanamo.' David Hare

After a sell out run at both the HighTide Festival 2010 and the Edinburgh Festival, Lidless comes to London and reconfigures Trafalgar Studios for the first time into an in-the-round auditorium, placing the audience within the world of the play.
