Reckoning With Torture Performances Available for Your Community
If you have not had the opportunity to see the powerful and moving reading performance of Reckoning With Torture: Memos and Testimony from the "War on Terror," it is now available for presentation for your group or organization.
Supported by a grant from the Diane Middleton Foundation, Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace (ICUJP) and Dramastage Qumran, in conjunction with The Veteran’s Project and the Los Angeles Region Religious Campaign Against Torture (LARRCAT), has adapted a script based on the original by the American Civil Liberties Union and PEN American Center. Taken from speeches, sworn testimony, and memos, the play shines a light on US involvement in rendition, indefinite detention, and torture, both abroad (Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo) and in US prisons (solitary confinement and inhumane conditions).
Performances are available for any group, and adaptable to almost any venue. The time of the performance is also flexible, ranging from 30 to 60 minutes. Performers are available for informal after performance discussions, or we will assist sponsors in setting up a more formal talk back or forum.
We will share opportunities for audience members to become involved in a variety of actions (signing a petition, letter writing, or more) with local, statewide, national and international campaigns against torture.
Fees for the performance are flexible depending on venue, length of presentation and post show arrangements.
For more information and/or to book a show between now and the end of May, contact ICUJP Program Director Andy Griggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-704-3217.
