Honey/The Night is Darkest Before the Dawn/On the Side of the Angels/Canopy of Stars/

Honey - by Ben Ockrent - While civil war rages, a lone CIA agent realises the dangers of American disengagement. He’s found an ‘in’ to persuade Commander Massoud, the Lion of Panjshir, to help them get back into the game. But with the Taliban closing in on Kabul, will it be enough? The Night is Darkest Before the Dawn by Abi Morgan - The widowed Huma is trying to re-open her husband’s school following the American bombing and ‘liberation’ of Afghanistan; however she needs to persuade six more girls to attend. But Behrukh’s father is more concerned with his opium crop, and who will harvest it. On the Side of the Angels by Richard Bean Jackie and Graham are working for Direct Action World Poverty east of Herat. They are thrown together to work on a new project about land rights. In trying to help and settle local disputes, the results are not what they expected, as Bollywood, women’s rights and tribal disputes create a toxic mix. Canopy of Stars by Simon Stephens - In a bunker guarding the Kajaki Dam, two soldiers talk of chips and gravy, football, women and whether the British should start to negotiate with the Taliban insurgents. A searing insight into soldiers at war, and what happens when they go home. Parts 1, 2 & 3 can be seen separately and not necessarily in chronological order Trilogy cost - £22-25 before Apr 10th. £32-36 after Apr 10th
