Full Cast Set for Betrayed at Aurora Theatre

Complete casting has been announced for the Aurora Theatre Company production of Betrayed, to run January 29-March 1. Robin Stanton will direct.

In early 2007, George Packer published an article entitled “Betrayed” in The New Yorker about Iraqi interpreters who jeopardized their lives on behalf of the Americans in Iraq with little or no U.S. protection or security. Based on Packer’s first-person interviews in Baghdad, the stage adaptation of Betrayed tells the story of three young Iraqis, two men and one woman, motivated to risk everything by America’s promise of freedom.

The cast will feature Bobak Cyrus Bakhtiari, Keith Burkland, Denmo Ibrahim, Alex Moggridge, Amir Sharafeh, Khalid Shayota, and James Wagner.
