I am considering seeing this play at the National, but I haven't heard much about it. Has anyone here seen the production yet? Is it worth a special effort to catch it in London? Thanks for any advice.

I'd say you would have made a wise choice compared with what else is on. I found it a very powerful inditement of how people
failed to react to the Rawandan genocide. Some superb peformances (esp Matthew Marsh). One of the better plays I've seen this year and am surprised at how little attention is seems to have got.

I'd definitely catch it if you can. Excellent performances by the whole cast and a pretty powerful play.
