Voices in Conflict -- a controversial new play about the war in Iraq, created by advanced theater students of Wilton High School, which was banned from performance by school officials -- returns by popular demand to the Vineyard, where the play made its New York premiere.
The show is based on the actual words of American soldiers serving in Iraq and Iraqi civilians, as they have appeared in blogs, books, documentaries, interviews and letters. As the concerns, anguish, pride and perception of these soldiers are articulated, Voices in Conflict explores the human dimension of war.
The student creators and company of Voices in Conflict are Sarah Anderson, Nick Basile, Erin Clancy, Afton Fleming, Devon Fontaine, Seth Koproski, Chris Kozlowski, Natalie Kropf, Nick Lanza, Cameron Scott Nadler, Jimmy Presson, Allie Rizzo, Tara Ross, Dagan Rossini, Taylor Telyan, and Mike Ward.
Following each performance will be a Talk-Back, led by Robert Cohen, Professor and Chair for the Department of Teaching and Learning at NYU's Steinhardt School of Education.
