"With public readings of the play Guantánamo: ‘Honor Bound to Defend Freedom’ the Guantánamo Reading Project focuses attention on the shameful and unlawful detentions at the U.S. naval base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The project’s goal is to encourage local debate and action to support the remaining detainees’ habeas rights to challenge their detentions in federal court, as upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2004.

The Center for Constitutional Rights and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, the project’s sponsors, invite people and groups across the U.S. and abroad to put on readings in their communities, using the list of steps and the resources on this web site. When your plans are underway, contact us so we can add your reading to our list of host cities.

Guantánamo: ‘Honor Bound to Defend Freedom’ is the work of playwrights Victoria Brittain and Gillian Slovo from spoken evidence and letters from British detainees to their families. The play was commissioned by London’s Tricycle Theatre, from an idea by Nicholas Kent, in January 2004, and played there and at the New Ambassadors Theatre, followed by amateur readings throughout the U.K. The play has had U.S. runs in New York City, Tucson, Northampton, San Francisco, San Diego and Boston."
