If survival meant complicity with a brutal regime, what would you sacrifice for someone you love?
May’s revolutionary idealism has earned her a job as prison photographer for the Organisation. But as the faces of the regime’s enemies pass her unflinching lens, will they shake May’s belief in the world she helped create?
Winner of the Amnesty International Protect The Human Playwriting Award and inspired by the history of Cambodia’s S-21 prison under the rule of the Khmer Rouge, playwright Sarah Grochala strips humanity bare in this compelling new play.
