Enlightening look at government surveillance

A PLAY looking at Edward Snowden and the debate surrounding surveillance will be performed at Norden Farm in Maidenhead.

A PLAY looking at Edward Snowden and the debate surrounding surveillance will be performed at Norden Farm in Maidenhead.

Light, produced by award-winning theatre company Theatre Ad Infinitum, is inspired by the whistle-blower and his revelations about the National Security Agency in America.

Audiences are transported to an Orwellian future where citizens are monitored through implants. A young government agent is charged with hunting down terrorists who try to fight the system. He meets an enigmatic figure with a shadowy past.

The story is told through several different mediums including an anime-style storytelling, a pulsating soundscape and a sci-fi realm.

This show uses LED strip and torchlight alongside a wordless production to create an intensely dark atmosphere. The show had a sell-out run at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has received much critical acclaim.



Theatre Ad Infinitum have won the Stage Award for best ensemble, the Fringe Review outstanding theatre award, the Argus Angel Award at Brighton Festival and won a Total Theatre Award in 2013 and 2011. The company have previously performed Odyssey, Translunar Paradise and The Big Smoke at Norden Farm.

The show, which is suitable for 12 years and older, will take place on Friday, February 6. Box office 01628 788997 or online at www.norden.farm/events/light
