Halcyon Theatre announces the Chicago Premiere of The War Zone is My Bed by Yasmine Beverly Rana.

In 1994 Sarajevo, in a bedroom brimming with bullet holes, Dahlia and Peter have a whirlwind romance. A famous writer reporting on the Bosnian War, he leaves her to return to his wife. In 2001 Kabul, in a bedroom with blacked out windows, an Afghan prostitute is having affair with a member of the Taliban religious police. Dahlia's book about Leila, Ash and the aftermath of their affair in Kabul makes her a famous writer in her own right. On her book tour, struggling with how we all profit from telling stories of war from a safe distance, Dahlia and Peter meet again.

The War Zone is My Bed will perform at Halcyon Theatre, in residence at Christ Lutheran Church, 4541 N Spaulding Ave. in Chicago. Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00, and Sundays at 6:00, from August 14 through September 14, 2014. There will be a special opening performance on Thursday, August 14.
