The program, to be directed by Erica Gould, consists of original theatrical material written by playwrights such as José Rivera, Jessica Blank, and Erik Jensen, woven together to present a kaleidoscope of views on the war in Iraq.
A post-performance discussion will feature Iraq war veteran, writer, and activist Paul Rieckhoff, Mark Crispin Miller, a noted author and professor of Media Studies at NYU, and a representative from Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict, which provides humanitarian aid to civilian victims in Iraq.
Upcoming events in the The Salon Series include The Theatre of Deception: Media Manipulation, Mob Consciousness, and American Politics, featuring Janeane Garofalo; Jason Grote's Box Americana; Video Games, Violence, and Digital Culture: An Evening of New Work; and Bonfire of the Vanities, composer Stefania de Kenessey's new music-theatre adaptation of Tom Wolfe's novel about race, class, and the morality of money.
