Whistleblower - Waterloo East Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
WHISTLEBLOWER – the story of Edward Snowden, a new play by Richard Roques, runs at Waterloo East Theatre from July 8 to August 3, 2014.
Edward Snowden is holed up in a hotel in Hong Kong. He has left his life in Hawaii, abandoned paradise, for a life on the run.
Tortured by thoughts of his girlfriend, his mother and father and the ghosts of other whistleblowers from Chelsea Manning in solitary confinement to Thomas Drake, threatened with 35 years in prison, he waits. But will the CIA and the National Security Agency find him first?
Alexander McConnell (with Assistant Director Leigh Outram) directs a cast that includes Ben Fisher, Lauren Pisano, Iain Dootson, Walles Hamonde, Kenneth Jay, Solomon Mousley, Victor Power, Amy Reitsma and Miranda Wilson.
The production is designed by Jonathan Gilmer, with lighting by Martin Eatough.
