The Lady of Burma

Theatre

James Seabright and Louise Chantal in associationwith the Burma Campaign UK present the Red Fighting Peacock production of

The Lady of Burma

by Richard Shannon

with Liana Mau Tan Gould as Aung San Suu Kyi

The inspirational true story of Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi is told in this compelling solo performance about the life of the only Nobel Peace Prize winner who is also a political prisoner. Despite being the democratically elected leader of the country, Burma's military junta have kept Suu Kyi under house arrest for over a decade.This powerful performance has already been made sell-out appearances at the Edinburgh festival and the Old Vic in London. Regardless of what you know or think about Burmese politics, this show is an unmissable hymn to the power of the human spirit in the quest for freedom

"Personal and political have rarely been so ferociously connected... Gould delivers with incendiary force." THE TIMES

"Rarely is a show so powerful" **** THE INDEPENDENT
