Christopher Eccleston leads a stellar cast for one night only in this tale of oppressive regimes and censorship. Read More >

John, Ali, George and Natasha are being held captive because the art they created was not to the taste of the regime in which they live. Though they are freed by the mysterious Captain, they may not yet be safe. Who is he? What are his motives? Is he even one of them?

Christopher Eccleston leads the cast of this one-night-only rehearsed reading, which also includes David Warner, Saffron Burrows, David Baddiel, Ewen Bremner, Navin Chowdhry and Bruno Langley. The reading is being staged to raise funds for Index On Censorship.
