“Highly honed… superb” – ★★★★ (The Stage)
“Intense… dark imaginings” – ★★★★ (The Herald)
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?
Written and directed by David Leddy, who is described as a ‘leading theatrical innovator’ (The Times), an ‘institution’ (Independent), a ‘maverick’ and a ‘genius’ (Scotsman).
