Scripted by Christine Bacon

DATE: Wednesday 8 December 2010                                TIME: 17:30 - 20:00 (Performance 18:00-19:00, followed by Panel Discussion*)

"You are in a land where there are no laws. Do you know what that means? We can bury you or keep you in this prison for 20 years and nobody on earth would ever know."

Rendition Monologues weaves together the first-hand testimonies of victims of extraordinary rendition; the kidnapping and illegal transfer of terrorism suspects and others considered to be implicated in the ‘War on Terror’ to be interrogated in nation states with a reputation for torture. A long list of nations, including the UK, have colluded in these rendition flights. As the truth begins to filter out about this issue, we hope that Rendition Monologues can contribute to a full reckoning over human rights abuses committed in the name of the 'War on Terror'.

Speaking about Rendition Monologues, Clive Stafford Smith, Director of Reprieve said: "If anyone doubts the shocking reality of rendition, they should see this performance."
*Panel members include: Lindsey German (Stop the War Coalition), Clara Gutteridge (Reprieve) and Dr Par Engstrom (Human Rights Lecturer, University of London)
