Theatre B is proud to host, for one night only, the provocative touring production Red, White, [Black & Blue]: Uncharged at Guantánamo this Saturday. The show explores the body of the tortured, spaces of exception, indefinite detention, resilience, and the lack of due process at the detention facility in Guantánamo Bay.
“There are clear human rights violations occurring at the detention facility in Guantánamo which is which is why we wanted to write and produce this play,” said Nathan Tylutki, producer, writer and actor of Red, White, and [Black & Blue]. “Fear of the government has changed the way people behave—we want to explore dissent as a form of patriotism and a way to use our right to freedom of speech.”
