An international group of observers arrives in a West African country to oversee and rubber stamp its first democratic election. New voters queue in their thousands, but a senior member of the observation team find herself both horrified by the presidentâs suppressive tactics and, for once, in a position to do something about it. Yet as violence on the streets escalates and the country enters free fall, an increasingly angry young translator forces this well-meaning outsider to confront the impact of her intervention.Performers Anna Chancellor, James Fleet, Chuk Iwuji, Leo Bill, Baon Broni, Peter Forbes, Lloyd Hutchinson, Aicha Kossoko, Louis Mahoney, Cyril Nri, Isabel Pollen, Joy Richardson.
