'Betrayed' Extends Off-Bway thru April 13
Due to demand for tickets, Culture Project has extended the World Premiere engagement of George Packer's captivating new play Betrayed, directed by Pippin Parker. Marking Packer's playwriting debut, Betrayed opened February 6, 2008, at Culture Project's SoHo theater (55 Mercer Street). The run will now continue through April 13, 2008.
"In early 2007, George Packer published an article in The New Yorker about Iraqi interpreters who jeopardized their lives on behalf of the Americans in Iraq, with little or no U.S. protection or security. The article drew national attention to the humanitarian crisis and moral scandal. Betrayed, based on Mr. Packer's interviews in Baghdad, tells the story of three young Iraqis - two men and one woman - motivated to risk everything by America's promise of freedom. Betrayed explores the complex relationships among the Iraqis themselves, and with their American supervisor, struggling to find purpose while a country collapses around them," describe press notes.
The cast of Betrayed includes Jeremy Beck, Aadya Bedi, Mike Doyle, Ramsey Faragallah, Sevan Greene and Waleed F. Zuaiter.
The design team is comprised of Garin Marschall (Set and Lighting), Eric Shim (Sound) and Rabiah Troncelliti (Costumes).
Performances are Monday at 8PM, Wednesday Friday at 8PM, Saturday at 3PM & 8PM and Sunday at 3PM. Tickets are priced at $25 - $60 and are available by calling 212-352-3101 or visiting www.cultureproject.org. Culture Project is located at 55 Mercer Street (at Broome) in the heart of SoHo.
