Why Torture Is Wrong
by Christopher Durang
Dec. 30, 2009—Jan. 17, 2010
The Playhouse at Overture Center
The Midwest premiere, following a sold-out run in New York! From America’s leading comedic playwright comes this satire about America’s growing homeland ‘insecurity.’ Felicity is a young woman suddenly in crisis: is her new husband a terrorist? Is her father’s butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Why does her mother enjoy going to the theater so much—does she seek mental escape, or is she insane?
“Christopher Durang’s Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them is the best title of the year—and much more...a crackpot post-9/11 political comedy and an almost hopeful romance.” —New York Newsday
