KANDAHAR GATE is a new play by Australian dramatist Stephen Sewell. This feverish "dream play" is loosely inspired by Akira Kurosawa's 1950 film "Rashomon," but transplants the action to contemporary Australia and centres on the death of a soldier in Afghanistan. At the dark heart of the play is an exploration of how 'truth' gets buried - by governments, the military and one's own memory. It is a powerful and deeply political piece of theatre from one of Australia's great playwrights. With an introduction by Jeff Janisheski.
