This play embraces a visit to the said prison by President George Bush, Dick Chaney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith. They watch a play within a play about the history of torture, which play moves on to enact torture techniques developed at McGill university, mainly on psychiatric patients: the discoveries here fed into a CIA interrogation manual, and eventually into the ‘coercive’ techniques approved by Bush and Rumsfeld for use at G-Bay. Tony Blair and John Howard appear later: sycophantic visitors. 2009.
