PROPHECY

Genre: Drama
Written and Directed by Karen Malpede

A play about the far-reaching effects of both the Iraq and Vietnam wars on those who served on the battlefield and those who served in protests, PROPHECY is also the story of a marriage: Alan Golden, a Jew whose past includes an affair with an Arab co-worker that results in the birth of a child, and his wife Sarah, an actress and acting teacher, whose intense bond with one of her students -- a talented and vulnerable Iraq War veteran -- triggers memories of a young man from her past.

The cast features PETER FRANCIS JAMES, KATHLEEN CHALFANT, GEORGE BARTENIEFF, BRENDAN DONALDSON and NAJLA SAID.

Tickets are on sale now to PROPHECY, which was previously presented to considerable acclaim in London in 2008 and where its fans include Vanessa Redgrave, David Hare and film producer Barbara Stone.

As well, Theater Three Collaborative has announced a series of post-performance "Talk Backs" at PROPHECY, with special guests including the internationally-renowned scholar and political activist NOAM CHOMSKY on June 8, and also featuring author and activist DAVID SWANSON on June 2, journalist and host of GRIT-TV LAURA FLANDERS on June 3, and journalist and former New York Times foreign correspondent CHRIS HEDGES on June 4.


 


About the Company: Theater Three Collaborative

Since its inception in 1995, Theater Three Collaborative, Inc. has been producing political, poetic, character-driven dramas in the theater of witness tradition (whose origins reach back to classical Greek tragedy). These are the plays which run counter to the theatrical status-quo and could not be produced but for this small, independent producing entity, founded originally by the late Lee Nagrin, George Bartenieff and Karen Malpede.
