Francis Turnly’s drama drills to the heart of the harsh politics and complex emotions surrounding a series of historic abductions of young Japanese people
Sometimes a play grips because of its subject. Such is the case with this new piece by Francis Turnly which, although dramaturgically conventional, opens up the story of the abduction by North Korea of young Japanese citizens.
Documentaries and movies have been made about this, but Turnly’s play seems especially timely as we struggle to understand life inside Kim Jong-un’s hermit state.
