A menacing fiction, made entirely of unimaginable fact, from the creators of The Litvinenko Project and Ventoux, seen at Summerhall in 2015.  Last Resort is the alternative future for Guantanamo Bay. You’ll sit in a deckchair, you’ll get a rum cocktail on arrival and you’ll feel the sand between your toes. Performed in a secret enclave in the Summerhall basement, 2Magpies Theatre will take you through the tropical haze on a unique multi-sensory package holiday. This is an extraordinary rendition and it is all-inclusive.
