Lynndie's Gotta Gun
A short play published for the first time, written during the author's time working with European theatremakers.
Enda Walsh's Lynndie's Gotta Gun is subtitled 'A play for former US soldier Private Lynndie England'. It was written in the light of the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse scandal of 2004, following which US Army Reserve Soldier Lynndie England was sentenced to three years in prison for her part in the abuse.
Lynndie's Gotta Gun was first performed by Artistas Unidos, a not-for-profit community organisation, at Teatro Nacional D. Maria II in Lisbon on 16 June 2005. The piece formed part of the Confêrenca de Imprensa e Outras Aldrabices, a collection of sketches inspired by the writings of Harold Pinter.
The play is also available in the collection Enda Walsh Plays: One.
