Last Resort is an alternative future for Guantanamo Bay. The waterboarding has stopped, the noise has been turned down and the military base has been reclaimed as a holiday destination. You, the audience, are our holidaymakers. You will sit in a deckchair, you will be offered a rum cocktail on arrival and you will feel the sand between your toes. We will be your tour guides.

Join 2Magpies Theatre as they take you through the tropical haze on a unique multi-sensory package holiday. Last Resort is a menacing fiction, made entirely of
unimaginable fact.

By the company that brought their sold-out production of Ventoux to Warwick Arts Centre last year.

“An acutely intelligent show” ★★★★★ Voice Magazine UK

“Last Resort’s master stroke is allowing the audience to get involved with the moral questions it poses: a tense debate, with something nasty at stake, was one of the show’s best moments” ★★★★ Three Weeks

“Powerful performance” ★★★★ Reviews Hub

Our Creative Learning Team says
Audience participation and immersion is used to explore Guantanamo Bay in this production. It offers a good opportunity to explore how immersive theatre can be used to subvert audience expectations and how playfulness can be used to explore serious issues. Suitable for A Level students.
