Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ariel Dorfman was inspired to write a theatrical presentation based on interviews with over 50 human rights activists from around the world. The resulting play, Speak Truth To Power: Voices from Beyond the Dark, was presented at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, DC in September 2000, and broadcast as part of PBS's The Kennedy Center Presents. The play has been produced across the United States and performed by major actors in Athens, Barcelona, Cape Town, Florence, Geneva, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Kinshasa, Madrid, Mantua, Milan, Phnom Penh, Rome, Seoul, and Sydney.
