Now he’s to present both plays, along with a third called Guantanamo Baywatch at the New Players Theatre. He’s grouped the trio under the title of The Dubya Trilogy. The new play blends fantasy and nightmare to depict a Guantanamo Bay of sun, sea and abuse. It follows the West End (and later Broadway) transfer earlier in 2004 of the Tricycle Theatre’s Guantanamo, which examined the Guantanamo Bay detentions from the testimonies of some of those involved. Other London shows to cover the Iraq War and its aftermath have included Tim Robbins’ Embedded and David Hare’s much-praised Stuff Happens at the National Theatre.
The Dubya Trilogy will play in repertory, and will all feature the same 14-strong company. It opens Oct. 19, and runs to Nov. 20.
