The production opened April 2 and was to have shuttered April 25. CTH's adaptation is described as "featuring modern music composed specially for the production, dance, and the vivid and harrowing accounts of the survivors of Sierra Leone, Somalia, and Baghdad. [It] is a direct expression of the wide spread destruction that is always happening `somewhere else.'" CTH artistic director Alfred Preisser directs.
Performances are at the HSA Theater, 645 St. Nicholas Avenue.
CTH's 2003-04 season began July 11, 2003, with a new staging of Shakespeare's Macbeth with Obie Award-winner Ty Jones. It continued with a new revival of poet Derek Walcott's 1967 play Dream on Monkey Mountain, starring two-time Tony-nominee Andre De Shields; and Mother Courage and Her Children.
