Stuart Hoar's new play tackles the War on Terror

From Standing Room Only, 12:32 pm on 9 September 2018

A New Zealander who defected to ISIS with his Arab wife is being hunted in the Middle East, in a new political thriller by playwright Stuart Hoar. But in the War on Terror, do the old gentlemanly rules apply? Rendered asks whether a NZ citizen can be handed over to a foreign power to be interrogated or even tortured? Veteran playwright Stuart Hoar, who's also a novelist and librettist, is premiering the play as part of New Zealand Theatre Month. Lynn Freeman talks to him about Rendered, and about his opinions about New Zealand darma at the moment. Rendered by Stuart Hoar premieres on the 18th of September at Auckland's ASB Waterfront Theatre.
