WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Altruistic Theatre Company presents Committed — a fictionalized account of the last two days of the Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh — by Natalie Menna and directed by Brock Harris Hill. Van Gogh worked with the Somali-born writer-politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali to produce the film Submission (2004), exposing the treatment of women, which outraged the Dutch Muslim community. He was murdered in November 2004. The play explores when artistic radical temperament collides with religious and political realities. Featuring Brad J. Fryman, Ivette Dumeng, Francisco Solorzano, and Philip Schneider. Produced by the Altruistic Theatre Company in conjunction with the Theatre at the 14th Street Y.
