Betrayed, according to press materials, "tells the story of three young Iraqis - two men and a woman - who are motivated by hope to go work for the Americans, until they begin to wonder who, if anyone, can be trusted. Betrayed explores the complex relationships among the Iraqis – and between them – and their American supervisor, against the backdrop of a war in which the hardest and most necessary thing turns out to be friendship."
Pippin Parker, co-artistic director of the Culture Project's "Democracy Project," will stage Packer's work. Casting is currently underway.
Packer's Betrayed is also slated for a January 2008 publication by Farrar, Straus and Giroux Publishers.
Tickets for Betrayed, on sale beginning Dec. 14, are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting www.cultureproject.org.
The Culture Project is located in Manhattan at 55 Mercer Street.
