THE BODY OF AN AMERICAN


By Dan O’Brien
Directed by José Carrasquillo
Starring Eric Hissom and Thomas Keegan

This engrossing and provocative play tells the true story of the extraordinary friendship between playwright Dan O’Brien and war reporter Paul Watson, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of a dead American soldier being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu reshaped the course of global events. In a journey spanning Rwanda to Afghanistan to the Canadian Arctic, and with powerful, theatrical language, O’Brien explores mental health, war, friendship and the ethical consequences of personal actions. Don’t miss the winner of the 2014 Horton Foote Prize for Outstanding New American Play in its regional premiere.

“Exhilarating…utterly riveting…high-octane show!” - The Washington Post

“A play that tightens its grip as it probes where war lives, and discovers we each carry it inside ourselves.” – The Guardian
