The Prisoner's Dilemma archiveThe Prisoner's Dilemma explores the delicate process of negotiating peace between a newly-independent post-Soviet government and an oppressed and militant Muslim minority. It is the third of David Edgar's plays about the aftermath by the fall of the Berlin Wall. The three plays deal with revolution, migration, and cultural and ethnic conflict, all subjects that remain relevant today. An epic dramatisation of attempts to resolve a bloody conflict on Europe's Eastern border.
