THE HUNTED: 5M, 2F DRAMA


FINALIST: O’NEILL PLAYWRIGHTS CONFERENCE

AUGUST 2017 WORKSHOP AT OREGON SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL’S BLACK SWAN LAB

“Comprised of an ensemble of OSF Acting Company members working with visiting playwrights, the Black Swan Lab’s mission is to harness the power of collaboration in order to create a resourceful, nurturing, and spirited community for the development of new work.”


Taqi, Nabeel and Imad: they are best friends and they are being hunted. When reports about the torture and executions of gay men in Baghdad start multiplying in 2008, a small team from the Human Rights Watch in NYC hastily plans a rescue mission that could be these three men’s salvation. But will the HRW be greeted as liberators when it becomes painfully obvious that their mission has no clear exit strategy?

Co-Written with Paul Oakley Stovall
