Royal Shakespeare Company - #WeAreArrested
Jonathon joins the Royal Shakespeare Company in their production of #WeAreArrested running from 13th November to 7th December 2019. The cast, lead by Peter Hamilton Dyer, also includes Indra Ové and Jamie Cameron with Sophie Ivatts directing.
Adapted from the book by Can Dündar, who was arrested for publishing footage of Turkish State Intelligence sending weapons into Syria, this deeply personal and universal story finds urgent new life as authoritarian politics spread across the globe.
Arcola’s first co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company is a vital story about the cost of reporting the truth in the age of fake news.
Whilst not his first show at the Arcola, this was Jonathon's debut with the RSC.
