Guardians at The Culture Project

The Culture Project Company presents Guardians, by Peter Morris, opening at the Culture Project on the 11 Apr 2006, following previews from the 1 Apr and running through to the 25 May 2006

Guardians: A two-character monologue play - a fictional account inspired by prominent true scandals of the Iraq War: the Abu Ghraib/Lynndie England affair and the publication by the British paper The Daily Mirror of fake torture photos, which led to the resignation of its editor. This twin scandal and the eerie collision of Britain and America raise troubling questions about torture and accountability in the U.S. Army and the responsibility of journalists during wartime.

Guardians' cast, directed by Jason Moore, features Katherine Moennig (American girl) and Lee Pace (English boy).

The show has set design by Richard Hoover.
