About the Play:

Time of Women marks the UK premiere of a play about women on the
forefront of a movement for a democratic Belarus, women with an
unflinching and unswerving dedication to the truth. One is Irina Khalip,
the PEN Pinter prize-winning journalist, arrested in Belarus for her
coverage of Lukashenko’s regime and described by Sir Tom Stoppard as,
“the writer I wanted to be”. Another is journalist Natalya Radina who
was also imprisoned after the presidential elections of 2010. Amnesty
International named her a prisoner of conscience and demanded her
release, as did the Committee to Protect Journalists. Today she lives in
exile in Poland and continues to run the Belarusian independent media
portal Charter 97. […] During the Belarus premiere, the apartment
building where the performance took place was surrounded by KGB
informers. A raid didn’t take place as there was a TV crew and British
citizens present. After the premiere the company lost the apartment as a
performance space.”
