Betrayal at the Culture Project-SoHo


Culture Project presents Betrayal, by George Packer, directed by Pippin Parker, opening at Culture Project-SoHo on 5 Feb 2008, following previews from 25 Jan 2008.


Betrayal, Packer's first play, based on his interviews in Iraq and other countries, 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.

Betrayal 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.
