"When the state has put an imposter in the most intimate aspects of your life, there really is no solid ground left on which to stand."
A group of British women discover their partners are undercover police officers living under false identities. Each of their stories – spanning several decades of deception, manipulation and surveillance – are remarkably similar, and now they are looking for answers.
Inspired by real events, and using a blend of real witness testimony and imagined characters, this new piece of theatre has been created by Breach together with Guildhall School final-year Acting students.
"Constantly pushing at the boundaries of theatre, [Breach] have reinvented what we mean by verbatim and documentary theatre" – Lyn Gardner
★★★★★ "the consistently exciting Breach" – Financial Times
Please note that Jackal Run contains strong language, adult themes, blood and references to drug abuse.
