Details are forthcoming on the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival hit which is expected to open at The Culture Project in March 2006.

Winner of the Fringe First Award at Edinburgh, Guardians follows in the footsteps of the downtown space's previous work Guantánamo: Honor Bound to Defend Freedom pulling source material from the headlines of the Iraq War.

Guardians turns its focus on the London paper The Daily Mirror which, in the wake of the infamous photos of United States army abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison, published shots of English soldiers engaging in similar atrocities. Soon after their publication, however, the British public learned that the Daily Mirror pictures were forged.

Moore's credits include the recent Broadway staging of Steel Magnolias, Off Broadway's The Crumple Zone as well as TV gigs on "Everwood," "One Tree Hill" and "Dawson's Creek." In May 2004, Storyline Entertainment confirmed the director was signed for an ABC television musical "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" featuring a score by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.
