We are delighted to announce that A Machine they’re Secretly Building has been long-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2017.
The Freedom of Expression Award honours an Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre production of excellent artistic merit that builds understanding and raises awareness about human rights in an inspirational way. Around 70 long-listed productions are reviewed by a team of volunteer reviewers and a panel of professional theatre critics, ahead of an award ceremony where the winning and shortlisted shows are celebrated.
Naomi McAuliffe, Amnesty International’s Scotland Programme Director, said:
“Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award is awarded to a production that inspires empathy and understanding of human rights issues. We have chosen A Machine They’re Secretly Building for our 2017 long-list and look forward to seeing the show.”
The full long-list can be found here and we are incredibly honoured that the show is being considered amongst them.
