It’s said that history is written by the victors; through the excruciatingly hopeless words of actual ”enemy combatants” detained without trial in an American-run prison in Cuba, the British creators of this show promise, ”History will not be neutered.” As the 12 cast members passionately inhabit real-life characters — an Iraqi national who lived in the U.K.; an English-born Muslim who was setting up a water-purification plant in Afghanistan; the desperate relatives of the captured; even Donald Rumsfeld — Guantànamo implicates the audience in the crime of indifference to a growing atrocity: the denial of basic human rights to prisoners of an international war. It’s not comfortable, but it’s powerful as hell.
