Whistleblower – the story of Edward Snowden
by Richard Roques

‘Glad to see Whistleblower is coming back.  It sticks closely to the events as they unfolded in Hong Kong and does justice to Edward Snowden’s revelations about the scale of state surveillance.’

Ewen MacAskill, the reporter who broke the story in the Guardian.

Reviews

`Whistleblower is always watchable. Events unfold with a thriller-like momentum…’
Guardian July 2014

`It could hardly be a better night for the premiere of Richard Roques’s play about Edward  Snowden. ….  Whistleblower is always watchable. Events unfold with a thriller-like momentum as Snowden finds himself caught between the good life he has made for himself in Hawaii, and the dawning realisation that he can’t live with himself if he keeps quiet and does nothing.   Whistleblower is a gripping story about a man who never set out to be a hero and who, like other whistleblowers before him, has paid a high price for telling the truth.’     
Lyn Gardner The Guardian 11 July  2014

`What’s impressive is the theatrical ballsiness of this London fringe production…’
The Times 11 July 2014

‘What’s impressive is the theatrical ballsiness of this London fringe production that’s manifestly on a shoestring budget directed by Alex McConnell on a rough-and-ready plywood plinth with a role-swapping cast of nine.  They criss-cross the stage from the sidelines where they sit at computer screens… snappy jump cuts are in the mix, Roques has researched his subject in depth and Whistleblower is an interesting follow up to Privacy (at) the Donmar. ’
