A word-for-word account of the FBI’s arrest of hero Reality Winner, a 25-year-old former Air Force linguist charged with leaking evidence that resulted in her conviction for espionage.

Tuesday 2 - Saturday 13 June, 19:45.

A true story, still unfolding. June 3, 2017. A 25-year-old former Air Force linguist named Reality Winner is surprised at her home by the FBI, interrogated, and then charged with leaking evidence of Russian interference in our voting system. She’s in jail now.

Three years later this staggering play, conceived and directed by Tina Satter, reveals the investigation’s official transcript as a verbal dance between the knife-sharp Reality, a now 28 year old woman from Texas accused of leaking top secret US intelligence, and the FBI agents who arrive at her home unannounced to interrogate her.

As Reality’s autonomy shrinks before her eyes, a simmering real-life thriller emerges, offering vital considerations of power, patriotism, and honour at this particularly loaded political moment.
