The eastern European country, Belarus, is often described as the continent’s last dictatorship. Its president, Alexander Lukashenko, has held on to power since 1994, and while the security services exercise tight control over dissent, since 2005, Belarus Free Theatre has been a critical voice in the country, promoting the works of Belarussian playwrights whose plays are banned inside Belarus, and holding an annual playwriting competition. This year, for the first time, the award ceremony for the competition was held in London. Jason Caffrey reports for BBC World Service, with following discussion with journalist Peter Pomerantsev and Politics professor, Julia Buxton. Presented by Paul Henley.
