    Performed daily by new actors, always reading blind, Horizontal Collaboration is an intense drama where sex, power and politics meet emotion, seduction and destruction.

    Four lamps, four laptops. Four U.N. lawyers present explosive tribunal transcripts from Judith K, an African warlord’s wife. After her husband’s assassination, Judith becomes leader. She takes her people on a treacherous path towards peace… or does she? Lawyers turn down lamps one by one, then laptops, until we’re all left in darkness.

    A thrilling new piece from multi-award-winning writer/director David Leddy. Enjoy as part of a Double Bill with streamable drama City of the Blind.
