About this show

From the screwball imagination of Bucks County resident Christopher Durang comes Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them, an uproarious new comedy about America's ongoing "war on terror" in an era of yellow, orange and red alerts. A young woman wakes up to a strange man, a hangover, and a whole lot of questions: Is her new husband, whom she married while drunk, a terrorist, a crazed alcoholic, or both? Is her father's hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a right-wing shadow government? Is her mother a theater-loving eccentric, or is she actually insane? The Philadelphia premiere of this off-Broadway black comedy hit is sure to make you re-think your right to personal privacy and homeland "insecurity."
