Aurora Theatre Company to Present Betrayed Panel Discussions

Aurora Theatre Company has announced two panel discussions that will accompany their West Coast Premiere of Betrayed, currently playing through March 8 at the Aurora Theatre.

George Packer’s play is based on his first-person interviews in Baghdad, and tells the story of three young Iraqis, two men and one woman, motivated to risk everything by America’s promise of freedom. As previously announced, the cast features Bobak Cyrus Bakhtiari, Keith Burkland, Denmo Ibrahim, Alex Moggridge, Amir Sharafeh, Khalid Shayota, and James Wagner.

On Friday, March 6, following the 8:00 pm performance, Upwardly Global will host a panel discussion that will feature two Iraqi refugees. On Saturday, March 7, following the 8:00 pm performance, The List Project will host a panel discussion featuring The List Project founder and director Kirk Johnson, who the show’s character Prescott was based on.
