9 Circles

Author(s): Bill Cain
Company: Collins Cohen Productions & Guy Masterson – Theatre Tours International Ltd in association with Park Theatre
Running time: 1h 30min approx

Based on real events, this taut psychological thriller seeks justice from the collision of morality and empathy.

A European première from multi-award winning House Of Cards writer Bill Cain. A Dantesque descent into the conundrums, contradictions and hypocrisies of war through the eyes of a repatriated US Army Private… now alleged war criminal.

Exactly how can a soldier be trained as a cold-blooded killing machine while clinging on to the threads of his humanity? What happens when those threads snap in the fog of war? How can we judge those who have killed for our freedoms? Can we truly apply civilian moral standards to a soldier in the throes of mortal combat?

Directed by Olivier Award-winner Guy Masterson (The Shark Is Broken), starring David Calvitto (12 Angry Men, Shawshank Redemption), Joshua Collins & Samara Neely-Cohen.
