The world-premiere staging, directed by Pippin Parker, stars Waleed F. Zuaiter, Jeremy Beck, Aadya Bedi, Mike Doyle, Ramsey Faragallah and Sevan Greene. The idea for Betrayed came from an article Packer wrote for the New Yorker about Iraqis risking their lives to aid the American war effort. Packer then crafted those interviews into the current theatrical piece, which runs through March 16. Tickets and information may be found at www.cultureproject.org.
