Rate this:
In her cell in Rangoon's Insein prison, Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi - incarcerated by Burma's military dictatorship for almost 20 years - tells her story. Richard Shannon's powerful and moving one-woman play vividly portrays the life and message of the world's most famous prisoner of conscience. Aung San Suu Kyi was held under house arrest from 1989-1995, and again from 2000-2002. She was again arrested in May 2003 after the Depayin massacre. At the time of writing she was still being held under house arrest in Rangoon. Aung San Suu Kyi's message is a simple one - that only by "fighting fear can you truly be free" - a message Burma's military fears and aims to silence. The Lady of Burma is a Red Fighting Peacock Production presented by the Burma Campaign UK and Louise Chantal. The Burma Campaign UK is part of a global movement to promote democracy and human rights in Burma.
