About This Show

An investment banker-turned-Marine-sniper recently returned from Iraq; a Saudi-American who just wants to get laid. In any other world, these two guys would be best friends. But when their lives collide in this one, each are forced to survive on the fly. Based on a true story.

Rattlestick has announced a series of post-performance talk backs to be moderated by Iraqi war veterans and officials from the Manhattan Vet Center. These discussions, which will include the cast and creative team, will serve as an open forum to discuss the socially relevant aspects of the play and how they are not only vital to our current climate, but also the future.

The scheduled talk backs are as follows:

Wednesday, December 10th – Wendy Katz, PhD, Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom Readjustment Services (VA New York Harbor Health System)

Sunday, December 14th – Joanne Izzo, psychiatric social worker (VA New York Harbor Health System) and 4 Iraqi vets from Gateway Community College (New Haven, CT)

Wednesday, December 17th – Mariel Sosa, GWoT (Global War on Terrorism) Outreach (Manhattan Vet Center Program) and 2-tour Iraqi Veteran

Thursday, December 18th – Todd Owens, former Marine sniper, Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Theatermania Review

| | November 24, 2008
Stephen Belber’s unfocused new play about the effects of war on two men doesn’t add up to a rewarding theatrical experience.
