SONGS OF SUFFERING: A TORTURE PLAY by Nolan B Nightingale

£4.00

Taking a look at fascism and its relationship to torture, “Songs of Suffering: A Torture Play” follows two officers in a dystopian America as they do whatever it takes to get answers out of a suspect. Also along for the ride are a ghost, a politician, and a suburban family. Shockingly real and disturbingly funny, this is a play that speaks to the modern world and what it could become.
