From violence on the battlefield and in the cells of Guantanamo to the toll exacted on the homefront, the seven plays collected by Malpede, Messina, and Shuman explore in depth the costs of war. Sometimes with humor or erotic charge, always with compassion and surprising insight, these contemporary plays return to the theater a necessary social edge.
Karen Malpede's introduction sets the plays in the broader contexts of theater's roots and recent history, while award-winning journalist and author Chris Hedges provides a foreword.
