Completely revised in the light of the premiere by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Kissing the Pope is accompanied by the enthralling diary kept by Darke during his research in Nicaragua, which offers a new perspective on the play itself. 

"Darke's play uses humour, irony and horror in equal doses to show the effect of war on the people of Nicaragua." Tribune

Press Quotes

"A wonderful piece of collaborative theatre about the Contra / Sandinista struggle... We're camping with the Contras. Prisoners are casually disembowelled. Suddenly a Sandinista ambush takes out the entire cast, leaving only one psychotic white Contra and a wide-eyed black prisoner to find their way to freedom... It was brave to kill of the Contras in the first 20 minutes, but they come back as Sandinistas, the rather too gentle guys mildly satirised by Darke when the offer their prisoner their knives with which to peel an orange. But the overall effect is something like a latterday HEART OF DARKNESS brough to epic life..."
