About the play:

Frank McGuinness's play is a dramatisation of the true story of Westerners held hostage in Lebanon in the late 1980s. An American doctor, an Irish journalist and a British academic are taken hostage and held by unseen captors in the Middle East. With no one else to turn to, the need to stay alive and sane overcomes their initial divisions and prejudices. In their battle to keep their spirits from faltering, their chief weapon becomes their imaginations, balancing the grim reality of the situation with moments of beauty, fantasy and poignancy. As victims of political action, powerless to initiate change, what can they do? How do they live and survive? A story of determination and imagination inspired by the true account of Brian Keenan.
