The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning

Written by

Directed by

Bradley Manning is the 25-year old US soldier accused of releasing 250,000 secret embassy cables and military logs from the Iraq and Afghan wars. After more than three years in prison without charge, Manning is now awaiting his sentence, having been found guilty of crimes that could mean life in prison. But just a few years ago, he was a teenager in west Wales. How did this happen? And who is responsible for his radicalisation?

The show will be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, as part of the British Council Showcase, with every performance streamed live online.
