Exactly 100 years apart, two womens lives are defined by conflict. A war-hardened, weary and cynical 21st century female war correspondent is being held in a Middle Eastern city. As she awaits her fate, she finds surprising parallels and strength recounting the story of a woman also caught in the centre of male-dominated warfare. Martyrs or spies, traitors or freedom fighters: history is littered with the bodies of women used as propaganda. Proteus create exciting, contemporary theatre that surprises and ignites audiences nationally and internationally.
