 Aiww: The Arrest Of Ai Weiwei

The artist Ai Weiwei was arrested Beijing Airport, trying to board a plane to Taipei in 2011. His subsequent disappearance for 81 days was explained as detention due to tax evasion. Based on conversations between the artist and Barnaby Martin, Howard Brenton's biographical drama is brought to the Hampstead Theatre stage, directed by James MacDonald.

About Hampstead Theatre

In 1962 the company moved to a portacabin in Swiss Cottage where it remained for nearly 40 years. More about Hampstead Theatre
