Stratford-upon-Avon's Hidden Gem

Someone Who'll Watch Over Me

By Frank McGuinness

Directed by Jonathan Legg

An American doctor and an Irish journalist are being held captive by terrorists in Beirut. They exercise and they argue, supportive in their mutual determination to survive. They are joined by an English academic. The three display their national biases and prejudices, which are intensified in the cramped confines of their cell.  They laugh at and with each other, and they learn to lament what was lost in their lives before captivity. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stories, sorrows and joys of the others and ultimately they are capable of standing together and alone.
