War Crimes @ Tunxis Community College
To our Friends and Family in the Connecticut Capitol Region...
Tunxis Community College will present a theatrical production of Sergei Burbank’s “War Crimes” on campus April 8 & 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Founders Hall.
A description of the play states, “In a possible present, the former president of the United States has been arrested and is on trial at The Hague for the deaths of American Muslims held in a detainment camp. Narrating these events is a 17th-century Dutch merchant from New Amsterdam. Over the course of the play we realize it is as much Europe’s expectations for America as the ‘light upon the hill’ that are on trial as it is the American president. Responsibility for the excesses of dreams becomes the currency as all parties barter with fate.”
The show runs approximately 90 minutes and is suitable for teens and adults. Tickets cost $5 and can be purchased at the door or in advance at the Tunxis Information Desk.
The cast includes Steven Mackenzie, Elizabeth Coffey, Lauren Austin, Alyssa Wasley, Bernard Sniadack III, Tommy Jackson, Tasya Abbot, Derek Guibert, Christian Torres and Johanna Yodkin.
