Yale Drama Series Award for Playwriting

Fifteen years ago, Alice was an interrogator in Guantanamo Bay. The pills she took means she can’t remember what she did. Fifteen years ago, Bashir was a prisoner there. Now he pays her a visit. David Hare awarded Lidless, Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig’s devastating first play, the Yale Drama Series Award for Playwriting in 2009. A work of extraordinary intelligence and finely-balanced sensibility, it marries the implacable logic of a Greek tragedy with an all-too-modern setting.

"If Henrik Ibsen had been alive in the era of Guantanamo, he’s surely have written a play every bit as scintillating as Lidless" - Scotsman.
Lidless premiered at the fourth High Tide Festival, Suffolk, in May 2010. The production transferred to the Edinburgh Festival 2010 where it won a Fringe First Award, before opening in the West End in March 2011.
