PlayLabs: "New Life" by Dan O'Brien

Monday, October 21, 2019 - 7:00pm
Saturday, October 26, 2019 - 1:00pm
Playwrights' Center

The war reporter in Syria, the playwright in treatment for cancer—together they endeavor to sell a TV show. The conclusion of O’Brien’s trilogy of poetic memoir-for-the-stage, with The Body of an American and The House in Scarsdale, New Life dares to dream of healing after trauma and of telling the truth of war as entertainment. A tragicomedy.
