From the screwball imagination of Bucks County resident Christopher Durang comes Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them
, an uproarious new comedy about America's ongoing "war on terror" in an era of yellow, orange and red alerts. A young woman wakes up to a strange man, a hangover, and a whole lot of questions: Is her new husband, whom she married while drunk, a terrorist, a crazed alcoholic, or both? Is her father's hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a right-wing shadow government? Is her mother a theater-loving eccentric, or is she actually insane? The Philadelphia premiere of this off-Broadway black comedy hit is sure to make you re-think your right to personal privacy and homeland "insecurity."
