By Naylah Ahmed
Regret and loss collide with fear and paranoia in a distorted reality fed by 24 hour global newsfeeds, blogs and chat rooms.
‘Ready Or Not was a response to the distortions and constant media feeding created by the so called war on terror. ‘In the 16 years since 9/11, so much has changed; paranoia has grown, the ‘us’ and ‘them’ rhetoric gathers pace, and 24/7 news coverage in the post-truth era now provides a soundtrack to our lives. The war on terror has left countries and peoples ravished with untold numbers of non-combatants killed – untold because they’re uncounted. Ready or Not explores these themes in a domestic setting where three characters deal with their own personal battles within this wider global context.’
