The Lady of Burma
from Wednesday 7 Nov to 2 Dec 2007
Written and directed by Richard Shannon
with Liana Mau Tan Gould as Aung San Suu Kyi
This compelling solo show tells the inspirational true story of Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi at a time when the world is watching the crisis in Burma unfold. Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner, mother and grandmother, leader of the democratically-elected party in Burma, has endured house arrest for over a decade. This powerful performance has already had sell-out appearances at this year's Edinburgh Festival and the Old Vic, and is an unmissable hymn to the power of the human spirit in the quest for freedom.
Tells it all ... and catches the pain and wry humour inside that tiny frame and strong, wise face. - The Times
Rarely is a show so powerful. **** - The Independent
