The Origin Theatre Company's off-Broadway production of The International, Tim Ruddy's new drama about the effects of an ethnic-incited conflict on people inside and outside a warzone, will host a post-show talk-back on April 30. The International runs through May 4 at The Cell, with direction by Christopher Randolph.

The talk-back's panel of experts will include Philippe Bolopion, the former U.N. correspondent for Le Monde who is currently the U.N. director of Human Rights Watch; Sandra Mitchell, the senior vice president of international programs for the International Rescue Committee; and playwright Tim Ruddy. Aisling Reidy, the senior legal advisor for Human Rights Watch, and a former prosecuting attorney at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, will moderate the conversation.

The International follows Dave, an aspiring artist and truck driver; Hans, a well-meaning international peacekeeper; and Irene, a passionate farm woman — all of whom witness the same events taking place during an unnamed war in Eastern Europe. The play unfolds as the audience sees the world through each character's eyes.

Timothy Carter, Ted Schneider, and Carey Van Driest star.
