The show had its world premiere in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has since been translated into fifteen different languages and performed over 200 times worldwide. A portion of the play’s profits will go to PEN International, the world’s leading association of writers working to promote literature and defend freedom of expression around the world.
