"We're not the troubles that we face, but how we choose to face them"
Freedom is a tense and powerful drama, punctuated by dark humour and tragic romance.
This is a story divided between Tajikistan and England, told in split screen, following three characters forced to choose between their own freedom and each others: there’s Benham, an opium farmer, desperately trying to prove a lie he told to his gangster masters; his son, Fariad, who reluctantly travels to England as part of his father’s scheme, only to find that he likes the western way of life; and Jennifer, a damaged girl who falls for Fariad’s unorthodox charms.
Some praise for Freedom:
"Gripping story that is well acted by all"...
"A Powerful story with an excellent set and music".......
"A valuable piece of theatre that should be heard"...
"Love the story line, subtle humour and the scenery, must be seen"....
Freedom completed two small tours of the UK, and in 2012 did a four-week run at the prestigious Arcola Theatre in London.
Subsequently, Freedom was performed in two different theatres in Madrid, Spain, to sold out audiences.
