About the Show/Event
Information for Guardians at Barons Court Theatre, Inner London (Play). In May 2004, the world first saw the infamous photos of Abu Ghraib. In the same week, a London tabloid, The Daily Mirror, published snapshots of English soldiers engaging in eerily similar atrocities. As troubling questions were raised about torture and accountability in the US Army, the British public learns that the Mirror photos were forgeries-- a newspaper known for its fierce anti-war stance has been hoaxed and humiliated, and its editor forced to resign. And somewhere amid misconduct by the English gutter press and the American army reserves, somewhere along the journalistic and military chains of command, lies the truth about Blair's and Bush's war.
