About the Show

Prisoner at the World’s End is a Kafkaesque imagining arising out of the grim and grotesque circumstances of Julian Assange’s imprisonment.
The play explores Assange’s predicament through the eyes of three very different women who work in a volunteer café at His Majesty’s Prison Belmarsh. Over the course of their day, as they work in a small room making sandwiches for inmates and visitors, they argue if Assange, the Australian in the High Security Unit is like the man in the parable, set upon by thieves, and left abandoned on a roadside until a Good Samaritan finds and helps him.
Beneath their feet runs a Neolithic pathway. Does violent primitive justice and magical thinking, still permeate the walls within England’s most notorious prison and justice system?
