On Friday 17th February, students in both Sociology and Psychology were invited to watch a thought-provoking theatre piece performed by Lynn and David Morris from the Journeymen Theatre.
The piece looked at the issue of state-sanctioned torture, both abroad and in the UK, and covered material such as the experiences of the mother of Pte Lynndie England (court-marshalled for the abuse of Abu Ghraib detainees) and a Kurdish asylum seeker at an appeal tribunal, amongst many others. Students and staff were enthralled throughout, with much of the subject matter useful to the students’ work on crime in their final A-level year.
We are very grateful to David and Lynn for giving up their time for us.
