Washington, D.C. — Tight, tense and boldly current, Guantanamo tells the gripping true stories of four British residents imprisoned at Guantanamo and paints an unforgettable portrait of America‘s controversial prison. Guantanamo tackles one of the most significant and troubling issues of our time-the U.S. government‘s arrest and imprisonment of terrorist suspects without due process. Actor Harsh Nayyar, who played Mr. Begg, father of Guantanamo inmate Moazzam Begg, in the New York production, returns to the role at The Studio Theatre. Guantanamo: ‘Honor Bound To Defend Freedom‘ runs November 2 — December 11, 2005, at The Studio Theatre, 1501 14th Street, NW.
