An Englishman, an Irishman and an American are locked up together in a cell in the Middle East.
As victims of political action, powerless to initiate change, what can they do?
How do they live and survive? Frank McGuinness explores the daily crisis endured by hostages whose strength comes from communication, both subtle and mundane, from humour, wit and faith. Someone Who'll Watch Over Me premiered at the Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1992 before transferring to the West End.
On Broadway, it was awarded the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play and nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play in 1993.
