Our good friend and compadre Louise Chantal is in town offering a deal on her new show. Louise produced The Exonerated in London and Edinburgh and if she's behind it, it's going to be quality work.
Here you go:
SPECIAL OFFER TO SEE A GREAT NEW PLAY IN NEW YORK!
A BRITISH SUBJECT
written by Nichola McAuliffe
at the 2009 Brits Off Broadway Festival, 59e59 Theaters
'Edge of the seat drama - it gave me some hope for the future of journalism.'
The Observer, London
We'd like to offer you a special discount to see a major new play which tells the incredible true story of a tragic miscarriage of justice. Already a big hit at this year's Edinburgh Festival, it is presented by the Pleasance Theatre - the biggest venue at the annual festival for the past 25 years - and follows Tahir Mirza, an 18 year-old boy who spent 18 years on Death Row in Pakistan before finally being released to go home to his family in Yorkshire. It's a true, touching and telling account of how the powerful and the powerless deal differently with bad luck. And it has a great cast of British actors including Olivier Award winner Nichola McAuliffe, who also wrote the play because it was her real life husband, the national journalist Don Mackay, who went to Pakistan to get the boy out of prison! As I said, it's an amazing story.
