Spanner in the Works Theatre Company celebrates 20 years of creativity with the return of the internationally acclaimed play, DIABLO, in a new extended version.
Diablo is a play about human trafficking in Northern Ireland. Set in Belfast, the action plays out in an ordinary house, in an ordinary street – it could be your street; it could be next door. Be a fly on the wall as Helena from Poland, Olya from the Ukraine and locals Alannah and Cain fight for survival under the tyranny of Spaniard Reuben.
Martin Luther King Jr said, “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it”.
Human trafficking and labour exploitation are some of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world because there is relatively little risk with high profit potential. Criminal organisations are increasingly attracted to human trafficking because, unlike drugs, humans can be sold repeatedly.
Contains strong language and scenes that some might find upsetting, including scenes of sexual violence. Suitable for 16+
