AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Diplomat, the Spy, the CIA, Rudyard Kipling, Lord Byron, Dick Cheney (a 10 foot lizard) and 32 other characters defend and patrol, confuse and concuss the US, the middle east and the rest of the world in a boiling vortex of subterfuge, paranoia, incompetence and international intrigue. This wild and furious play - it's stylish, surreal, funny and alarming in equal measure - gets its teeth into the intelligence that lead to the war in Iraq asking tough questions about politics, accountability and the human cost of the war on terror.'
