Written and performed by Margo Lee Sherman, What Do I Know About War? is a new solo performance based on the actual words of contemporary American soldiers who have served in Iraq. Through a series of fragments and vignettes composed of quotes from an amazingly diverse spectrum of real-life characters, Sherman gets at the human cost of the war.
From two gung ho 19-year-old girls killed in combat, to a long-time professional soldier who reexamined his beliefs in the wake of Abu Ghraib and became a conscientious objector, these remarkable stories, performed with Sherman's unique intensity and concentration, convey the many dimensions of this complex tragedy with power and immediacy, offering new insights. What Do I Know About War? puts a human face on the many who have served (and the many who have died) in the U.S. action in Iraq.
