Free Belarus Project

Due to recent events in Belarus and their connections with theater artists there, we joined the many who are working to raise awareness of the situation. The above image, taken by actor Michael Laurence, shows Tom Stoppard at a protest in London on December 21, 2010.

As part of this effort we helped facilitate many readings of Being Harold Pinter (a piece by the Belarus Free Theater presented at the Under The Radar festival January 2011, where they were awarded an OBIE) to help raise awareness of the situation. Members of Belarus Free Theatre were arrested following mass protests of the recent elections in December 2011 and are currently making a home in exile in London, England.
