Hostage is a crucifying aloneness. It is a silent, screaming slide into the bowels of ultimate despair. - Brian Keenan (Hostage during the Lebanon Crisis)
Inspired by the Lebanon Hostage Crisis of the 1980s, "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me" follows the heartbreaking ordeal of three civilian men as they struggle with the terrifying monotony of life as a hostage.
"In a play which is heartrendingly compassionate, tenderly tragic but also uproariously funny... an Irishman, Englishman and American overcome their cross-national tensions to form a close friendship under the appalling strain of captivity". (CurtainUp)
