This fierce new drama by the author of Talking With, Anton in Show Business, and Keely and Du redefines patriotism as it brings the tragic fallout from the war in Iraq home to America's heartland. When a grieving father inverts our nation's most revered symbol, the family is swept into the vortex of a chaotic war machine. Portrayed in the press as both 'heroes with a cause' and 'enemies of the state,' they become embedded in a bitter struggle for their very survival. Jane Martin gives voice to the white-hot rage and sorrow of our time, delivering a shock-and-awe display of theatrical force.
"A powerful gut-punch of a play, blisteringly contemporary." - Minneapolis Pioneer Press "Powerfully mines heartbreak, loss, and disillusion to universalize the Iraq war. Brave, deeply compassionate, and, most importantly, very good drama." - Minneapolis City Pages
