So, there’s an Englishman, an Irishman and an American and they’re locked up in a cell in Beirut… Why? And just how they are going to survive their unseen captors, and "the boredom, the boredom, the bloody boredom" of it? And they find each other; three bollocks in a cell in Lebanon. They turn to Virginia Wade, Her Majesty the Queen and Desert Island Discs, not to mention their own wit, imagination and courage to stay alive and sane.
The play is based on real events; in the mid 80’s Shi’ite militia captured Irishman Brian Keenan and British journalist John McCarthy. For nearly five years the men were held hostage, with no contact with the outside world. This beautiful text is based on the story of their struggle and their friendship.Tickets £12/ £10 (includes £1 development donation)
