Iwan Rheon recites Fidel Castro's 1953 speech "History Will Absolve Me"



As a part of the Almeida Theatre 'Figures of Speech' collection, Game of Thrones/Misfits/Olivier award-winner Iwan Rheon took the time to recite ten minutes of Fidel Castro's famous 1953 speech. While some people forget he's an actor and stay mad about him promoting a "communist manifesto," most reaction seems to be mostly praise for the impassioned performance.

Figures of Speech examines political and social ideas through performance art. Previous participants include Derek Jacobi, Noma Dumezweni, Russell Tovey, Tobias Menzies and Ian McKellen.
