"Last week, Andrew was that guy with his girl lunching in KFC, discussing apartments and making plans for the future. Today he’s in Moscow, in an undisclosed hotel room, on the run and at risk of assassination. Last week, a nobody. This week, America’s Most Wanted: a man who humiliated his country with one touch of a button."
Bartlett's play is described as being 'darkly comic', and explores the unexpected, bewildering, and life-changing consequences of challenging the status quo at a global level. As the State grows more powerful because of technology, and technology grows more powerful because of the State, where do the self-appointed protectors of the rights of the citizen stand? Heroes? Or traitors?
Mike Bartlett returns to the Hampstead Theatre following his adaptation of 'Chariots of Fire' which later transferred to the West End. His play 'King Charles III' played a sell-out season at the Almeida Theatre, following a run in the West End where it went on to the win the Olivier Award for Best New Play. It later transferred to Broadway, and was recently nominated for a Tony Award.
