WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Their hearts and minds torn by fear, pain and grief, two young American officers in Vietnam have lost faith in themselves, their families, their country and their God. When they meet in Penang in a brief respite from the Mekong Delta, they learn what every soldier comes to know: In war, the only thing that truly matters is the guy next to you. But is this truth enough to save them? Penang, a powerful story of young men at war, earned five nominations at the Midtown International Theater Festival, including best drama, and won the Playwrights First Award at The Players in Gramercy Park. There will be a talkback every Sunday, following the matinee. This production features full-frontal nudity. Group Sales: 646-303-2041 Cash only at the door. "This smart, tough-minded, insightful play plumbs deeply and feelingly into the emotional wounds that warfare leaves on us. It's a fine work, given a noteworthy and resonant mounting by director Donya K. Washington for Madison Street Productions and BOO-Arts Productions."--Martin Denton, nytheatre.com "A brilliant, moving production which brought me to tears, gave me chills, and exposed a layer of male bonding that I don't often get to witness."-The Happiest Medium
