MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow directs the staging at City Center's Stage II. Previews began Off-Broadway Nov. 2. "In a rural village in a war-torn country, an American pilot crash-lands," according to MTC. "Should the villagers in the region help him, murder him or use him as a pawn in a dangerous game with the enemy? This powerful, topical and very human new play just earned raves at London's Royal Shakespeare Company. This new production will mark its eagerly anticipated American premiere."
