Horizontal Collaboration TOURING SCOTLAND

Following a successful Fringe run in 2014 including being shortlisted for an Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, Horizontal Collaboration returns to venues throughout Scotland this Autumn.

HORIZONTAL COLLABORATION is a courtroom drama with a dark twist where sex, power and politics collide with emotion, seduction and destruction. Four steely U.N. lawyers read out startling interview transcripts from their laptops in an explosive tribunal concerning ‘horizontal collaboration’ - the name given to the supposed wartime crime of having sex with an enemy soldier. The intense stillness of the courtroom contrasts with the volatile narrative that unfolds around Judith K, an African warlord’s wife. After her husband’s assassination, Judith becomes leader and takes her people on a treacherous path towards peace… or does she? And can women ever be given the freedom to lead in a different way from men?
