In this play based on a true story, we find an investment-banker-turned-Marine-sniper recently returned from Iraq and a Saudi-American who just wants to get laid. In any other world, these two guys would be best friends. But when their lives collide in this one, each is forced to survive on the fly.
"There are no heroics in this edgy drama about a Marine who comes home from Iraq with a bad case of post-combat stress. There's no glory, either, in the sad story of how he alienates friends and menaces strangers. What the play has, instead, is substance and purpose—and plenty of guts. Tough subject matter is presented with few compromises." —Variety. "[Stephen Belber] writes fluid, naturalistic dialogue and shapes his characters with care…Smartly woven…quietly probing." —NY Times. "Starting out slow, ultimately reaching a climax of dizzying heights, raw, haunting emotion is very apparent in Belber's script…a very powerful commentary on the state of the (post-Iraq) world." —NYTheatre.com. "[GEOMETRY OF FIRE] sees the daily skirmishes at home as important as those waged on foreign soil…bold strokes that, for once, result in something more provocative than just another paint-by-numbers interpretation of a difficult and nuanced conflict." —Talkin' Broadway.
