About This Show

Steven Fechter’s The Commission was written in 1996 in response to reports of atrocities and mass rape being committed in the former Yugoslavia. The haunting play remains as relevant today as it was 11 years ago. Set in an unnamed foreign land, the drama takes an unflinching look at the minefields of the bedroom as well as the fragments, both personal and political, left behind in the wake of a bloody civil war. The story spins backward in time to reveal the interlocking lives of a young soldier named Ivan; Tulia, the fiancée he leaves behind; Paula, an American expatriate professor; and her lover Karl, a war crimes investigator with a hidden past.

The Commission is presented as part of the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival.
