Winner of the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe First Award
'Charlie, there's plentya shit they do in this part of the world, and the reason we're here is 'cause we're not gonna give it a try. Isn't that so?' The images of war. Snapshots from Abu Ghraib that depict atrocities committed in the name of freedom. Tabloid images of English soldiers abusing an Iraqi prisoner that are later revealed as fakes. And somewhere between England and America, between savagery and spin, lies the truth. In monologues that mingle fierce irony with humane warmth, heart-breaking emotion with breathtaking intelligence, "Guardians" offers storytelling at its simplest - and its most complex. A disgraced American soldier tells her story. And a clever English journalist tells how he got his. This book is the winner of a Fringe First Award at the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Winner of the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe First Award. "Compelling…sympathetic and powerful…closely observed." —NY Times. "Provocative…potent…nothing short of remarkable." —Village Voice. "Thrillingly, shatteringly effective…Morris' play sends you into a state of moral turbulence. As the Danish physicist Niels Bohr said about the theory of quantum physics, if you are not shocked by it, you have not understood it." —Sunday Times (London).
