LIDLESS by Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig


Fifteen years ago, Alice was an interrogator in Guantanamo Bay. The pills she took means she can’t remember what she did. Fifteen years ago, Bashir was a prisoner there. Now he pays her a visit. David Hare awarded Lidless, Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig’s devastating first play, the Yale Drama Series Award for Playwriting in 2009. A work of extraordinary intelligence and finely-balanced sensibility, it marries the implacable logic of a Greek tragedy with an all-too-modern setting.

Lidless premiered at the fourth High Tide Festival, Suffolk, in May 2010. The production transferred to the Edinburgh Festival 2010 where it won a Fringe First Award, before opening in the West End in March 2011.
