  • Overview
    A richly provocative new play.

    An American pilot has crash-landed in a distant country rent by civil war. Since the Americans fund the country's oppressive government and the pilot has landed in rural, rebel territory, he represents both a temptation and an opportunity. To a guerrilla captain, he is a hostage who can draw the attention of the world's media to his country's suffering. To an ex-Marxist translator, he is a reminder of his own love-hate for the seductive great Satan. To a trader, he is a source of potential profit. But to Evie, the 16-year-old daughter of a local farmer, the pilot is an object of humane curiosity.
