TRUTH AND TREASON: POWERFUL - PROVOCATIVE - PERSONAL
WORLD PREMIERE AT THE MONUMENT NATIONAL Teesri Duniya Theatre launches the world premiere play Truth and Treasonwrittenby Rahul Varma and directed by Arianna Bardesono. It is a fearlessly told contemporary story exploring the war on terror as well as terror itself. It brings war to a personal level and explores the themes of fundamentalism, consciousness and love.
Director Arianna Bardesono says:
Riding the refreshing ‘wind of change’ brought by Obama’s presidency and acknowledging the enlightened mood that has spread among other world leaders; being aware of the growing threat of nuclear weapons and space militarization, and of the many difficulties that our planet is presently facing; caring for the future of our race and for the present safety of our dears: Truth and Treason is a play not to miss.
