Ron Elisha's Man in the Middle, about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, will make its European premiere at Theatre503 in London, January 10-February 4. Lucy Skilbeck will direct.

The play, co-presented by Cheepuk, is described as "a Wikiplay," sourced from the public domain, refracted and redacted by Elisha. It asks the question, "How is it possible that a self-educated aussie 'Hactivist' who never finished high school could change our perception of the world and initiate a global chess game which had the greatest leaders of our time lawyering up?"

The work received its world premiere, under the title Stainless Steel Rat, at the Seymour Centre, in Sydney earlier this year.
