Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and piece by piece productions have announced their latest production, Daniel Talbott's Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, America, Kuwait. Directed by the author, it will run at the Gym at Judson beginning May 21, with opening night set for June 9, and a closing date scheduled to take place on June 27.

Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, America, Kuwait takes place in the not-so-distant future as two American soldiers wait at a worn-down outpost in the desert. The world has been ravaged by war, its natural resources stripped, and it is no longer clear if there is an enemy left to fight or anything left to fight for. They wait for orders, provisions, a sign of life, or even death.

The cast includes Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Brian Miskell (The Undeniable Sound of Right Now), Seth Numrich (Golden Boy), Chris Stack (Your Mother's Copy of the Kama Sutra), Jimi Stanton, and Jelena Stupljanin (Circus Columbia).

The set design for Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, America, Kuwait is by Raul Abrego, costume design is by Tristan Raines, lighting design is by Joel Moritz, sound design is by John Zalewski, projection design is by Dave Tennent, violence and dance choreography by UnkleDave’s Fight-House.
