Put your feet in the sand. Hear the pulse of music in the distance. Take a sip of your cocktail. Welcome to a tropical paradise where your every sense is catered for. Welcome to Last Resort.
Having taken on doping scandals and state-sponsored assassination, 2Magpies Theatre turn their attention in Last Resort to Guantanamo Bay, exploring the imagined future of a deeply troubling past.
Last Resort is an all-inclusive package holiday in a former detention centre.
