The west coast premiere of the play by Actors' Gang artistic director Tim Robbins will open Nov. 15. Embedded roots itself in today's headlines as embedded journalists spin their stories on soldiers involved in a Middle Eastern conflict. The work takes a biting look at the world of media, politics and war through characters including jaded journalists, scheming government officials and a showtune-singing colonel.
As an actor, Robbins can currently be seen in "Mystic River." He has also appeared in such films as "Bull Durham," "The Hudsucker Proxy," "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Player." He recently appeared Off-Broadway in the rotating cast shows: The Guys, Trumbo and The Exonerated. Also a screenwriter-director, Robbins penned and helmed the film versions of "Cradle Will Rock," "Bob Roberts" and "Dead Man Walking."
