How could anyone kill their own father? Acclaimed actor and writer Trevor White (Long Day's Journey Into Night, West End; Enron, Royal Court) and Alex Austin (Fury, Soho Theatre; Yen, Royal Court) interrogate one of the rarest and most shocking crimes known to man, with the on-stage participation of convicted patricide Martin Santos. An electrifying tale about retribution and justice, love and masculinity, Thebes Land has played sold-out runs in eight countries across Europe and Latin America. Created in collaboration with celebrated Franco-Uruguayan playwright Sergio Blanco and award-winning director Daniel Goldman, this daring new play teases the boundaries between truth and lies, what you know and what you think you know. Please note: Thebes Land is presented with the consent of all parties and in accordance with Home Office regulations. It will be staged inside a large protective cage.Performers Trevor White, Alex Austin.
