A modern classic by Frank McGuinness, set in a Lebanese basement cell during the 1980s. The play tells the story of three international hostages; one American, one Irishman, and one Englishman; how they deal with each other, their dire situation and their salvation through their compassion.
Original music was written for all the transitions. A chamber string orchestra consisting only of cello, viola and bass was used to mirror the simplicity of their location, yet still provide enough range to cover the characters’ dynamic emotional swings between hope and dejection.
All the cues were written in Sibelius and Ableton Live and played back by QLab.
