In Prayer for my Enemy, two middle-class families in suburban New York State confront their private demons against the public backdrop of the American incursion into Iraq. As their paths cross in ways that are both comic and terrifying, lies and secrets are at last exposed and an honest, hard-earned redemption is achieved for both.
"A newly-minted classic." - The New York Times
"...count on Lucas...to put his own stamp on the messy familial and sexual identity issues, exacerbated by a society that fosters substance abuse and alienation." - Curtain Up
"Playwright Craig Lucas doesn't repeat himself, except in terms of quality. The skill, creativity, humor, ironies and sensitivity that are hallmarks of such other Lucas scripts...are all on display in his triumphant new work." - Talkin' Broadway
