Rendition Monologues

(Launched June 2008)

Scripted by Christine Bacon

Original Score by Michael Edwards

Rendition Monologues weaves together the first-hand testimonies of victims of extraordinary rendition; the kidnapping and illegal transfer of terrorism suspects and others considered to be implicated in the ‘War on Terror’ to be interrogated in nation states with a reputation for torture.

Rendition Monologues was a collaboration with Reprieve programmed at Massive Attack’s Meltdown Festival at the Southbank Centre in 2008 and has staged multiple performances since.

Actor Ery Nzaramba reflects on being part of Rendition Monologues

***** “Be warned. This play will leave you angry. Angry and most likely guilty too at British complicity in this unlawful, inhuman practice… if five stars mean a show is unmissable, then Rendition Monologues must get them.” WHAT’S ON STAGE

“This was a haunting and horrifying account which also paid testimony to human resilience” METRO

“If anyone doubts the shocking reality of rendition, they should see this performance.” CLIVE STAFFORD-SMITH, DIRECTOR OF REPRIEVE
