WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Welcome to the Capital Punishment Cafe! Our chef's specials today include electrocution, hanging and lethal injection. And save some room for dessert, because we've got firing squad and stoning. Can I take your order? In 2013, Belarus is the last country in Europe to still use the death penalty, keeping company with 94 other countries across the world. Banned from performing openly in their home country, Belarus Free Theatre present new work that weaves together real-life testimonies with extracts of Shakespeare's tragedies, live music and dance to challenge the justification behind capital punishments continued use.
