Lace Balloon presents Dead Time, a new Australian play about the
story of Dr Mohamed Haneef: an Indian national working on the Gold Coast,
arrested in 2007 on suspicion of being
connected to the attack on Glasgow Airport. He was then detained without charge for the longest period on record in the country under new anti-terrorism provisions in the Commonwealth Crimes Act.
It is a story of one man’s incredible struggle, as well as the struggles we each have to face and the challenges we face as a country. How do we protect national security? And at what cost to our freedom? Who are we letting lead the conversation about race, religion and national identity? And how are we keeping them to account?
What can happen, and who will step up, when the time between arrest and charge is potentially unlimited?
