*Talking to Terrorists* as readers theater, Nov. 15-16

*Talking to Terrorists* by Robin Soans will be presented in an abridged form as a staged reading on Wednesday-Thursday, Nov. 15-16, at 7 pm at Gonzaga's Jundt Art Museum auditorium, 202 E. Cataldo Ave.
Soans says the drama asks the question: “Why do people become terrorists?” The play debuted in London one week before the July 2005 transit system bombings that killed 52 people.
*Talking to Terrorists* had its American premiere in Boston in March.
Soans interviewed terrorists from around the world, victims of terrorism, and military, political and humanitarian opponents of terrorism. From those interviews, he wrote a drama that explores the motivations that lead some people to murder and maim others for perceived political gain. The audience will hear the actual words of bombers, hostages, torturers and victims.
A discussion facilitated by GU theater professor John Hofland will follow the 70-minute reading.
Kevin Connell, S.J. will direct.
Donations requested ($1) at the door.
