Join 2Magpies Theatre as they take you through the tropical haze on a unique multi-sensory package holiday. Last Resort is a menacing fiction, made entirely of unimaginable fact.

Last Resort is an alternative future for Guantanamo Bay. The waterboarding has stopped, the noise has been turned down and the military base has been reclaimed as a holiday destination. You, the audience, are our holidaymakers. You will sit in a deckchair, you will be offered a rum cocktail on arrival and you will feel the sand between your toes. We will be your tour guides.

unimaginable fact.

By the company that brought their sold-out production of Ventoux to Warwick Arts Centre last year.
