In 2010 going to the theatre is a crime. People travel far from their homes, directed by text message to a secret spot in the countryside for a glimpse of a performance. Audiences are arrested Ė supporters are kidnapped, imprisoned and killed. This isnít fiction. This is Belarus.
Belarus Free Theatre present two short plays - Numbers and Discover Love - with guest appearances from Jude Law, Ian McKellen, Sienna Miller and Samuel West.
This groundbreaking event is a fundraiser for supporters of free speech in Belarus and a show of support from the British arts community for one of the most acclaimed political theatre companies in the world.
