About the show
April 2012 / Harverfordwest, Cardiff and Flintshire
THE RADICALISATION OF BRADLEY MANNING
This tells the story of Chelsea Manning (born as Bradley Manning), the former US soldier accused of releasing 250,000 secret embassy cables and military logs from the Iraq and Afghan wars. When this play was written, Manning had spent three years in prison without charge and was awaiting sentence, having been found guilty of crimes that could mean life in prison. But just a few years prior to this, she was a teenager in west Wales. How did this happen? And who was responsible for her radicalisation?
The show opened at Tasker Milward School, Haverfordwest, where Chelsea Manning completed her secondary education, and then toured to Cardiff High School and Connah’s Quay High School in Flintshire.
