Feeding the Darkness – Review

Another moving, thought-provoking and disturbing performance from Lynn and Dave of Journeymen Theatre. They have done meticulous research into that grey area where advanced interrogation techniques blur into torture, and they perform their pieces with quiet passion. For those of us who always thought that torture was something carried out by ‘other peoples’, it is surprising to find out how many ‘civilised’ nations of the developed West carry out, or collude with, these techniques.

There is material at the back of St Mary’s church, Stottesdon, left by Lynn and Dave with ideas about how ordinary people can help those who are dealing with asylum seekers fleeing from torture in their own country.
