The Empire at Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre

Third in a season of plays presented in an empty shop unit by the Royal Court Theatre.

Helmand in the height of summer.

Gary, a British soldier, and Hafizullah, his Afghan colleague, guard an injured young prisoner, Zia, found in the heat of battle.

Gary wants answers, Hafizullah just wants to make it through the day and Zia thinks there has been a big mistake.

DC Moore's second play dissects the politics of occupation, home and abroad. His first play Alaska opened at the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in 2007. He won the inaugural Tom Erhardt Award for promising new playwrights in 2008.
