THE STORY: A tour de force for two actors, GUARDIANS presents an unflinching look at the images of war. In a series of monologues, the play tells the stories of two scandals—the infamous snapshots from Abu Ghraib prison, which depict atrocities committed by American soldiers in the name of freedom; and the strikingly similar photos of English soldiers, published by a London tabloid but later revealed as fakes. In monologues that mingle fierce irony with human warmth, a disgraced American soldier tells her story—and a clever English journalist tells how he got his.
