How Many Miles to Basra?

Southern Iraq, April 2003. Four soldiers, a journalist and their Iraqi translator set off on an unauthorised journey deep into the Iraqi countryside in a disastrous attempt to make amends for the deaths of some local men at a vehicle checkpoint.

Developed from Teevan's highly acclaimed BBC Radio 3 play, How Many Miles to Basra? is a superb examination of how definitions of truth and responsibility become blurred in times of war - not just in the armed forces and political arena, but in the media too.

How Many Miles to Basra? was performed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse (Leeds) in September 2006.
