#WeAreArrested is a gripping play about fighting for truth in a network of lies.

Adapted from the book by Can Dündar, who was arrested for publishing footage of Turkish State Intelligence sending weapons into Syria, this deeply personal and universal story finds urgent new life as authoritarian politics spread across the globe.

The editor of the country’s most esteemed national newspaper receives an astonishing piece of film footage one morning. It proves that the president is secretly smuggling weapons into a neighbouring country.

The public and the parliament are unaware that they are being drawn into an international war.

He decides to publish the pictures. The resulting uproar changes his life forever.
