Photo Flash: First Look at Halcyon's WAR ZONE IS MY BED

‚Äč

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.
