‘The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning’ is nominated for five Theatre Critic of Wales awards. WalesOnline reports, “The Radicalisation Of Bradley Manning has five entries, including Best Production in the English Language; Best Ensemble and Best Director (John McGrath).”

From the creators’ website:

“Bradley Manning is the 24-year old US soldier accused of releasing 250,000 secret embassy cables and military logs from the Iraq and Afghan wars. After nearly two years in prison without charge, Manning now faces a court martial, accused of crimes that could mean life in prison. But just a few years ago, he was a teenager in west Wales. How did this happen? And who is responsible for his radicalisation?”
