WHY TORTURE IS WRONG,
AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM
by Christopher Durang
June 15 to July 7
OVATION STAGE produces in Sacramento, CA (April 2013) – The Sacramento premiere Of WHY TORTURE IS WRONG, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM by the American Playwright known for works of outrageous and often absurd comedy, Christopher Durang will open June 15 at the Three Penny Playhouse, Penny Kline will direct.
WHAT: WHY TORTURE IS WRONG, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM turns political humor upside down with this raucous and provocative satire about America's growing homeland "insecurity." It tells the story of a young woman suddenly in crisis: Is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Honing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang oddly relieves our fears in this black comedy for an era of yellow, orange and red alerts. “Christopher Durang has the wit, the high, rebellious spirits, and the rage of the born satirist. He is also one of the funniest and most original playwrights at work.” – New Yorker
