What I Heard About Iraq

"What I Heard About Iraq": I just learned that this powerful play has been extended once again, through at least January, at the Fountain Theatre in Hollywood. Told entirely through the actors quoting those intimately involved in the war (Dubya, his cabinet, military officers, soldiers, Iraqi civilians), supplemented by background images and soundtrack. It might seem that such a staging could soon get repetitively tiring, but it is truly and unapologetically compelling throughout. Adapted and directed by Simon Levy (from the article by Eliot Weinberger). Post show discussions led by cast, crew and special guests after the performances.

Check it out. Info here at the Fountain Theatre web site.
