The Midwest premiere of the new play by Kathleen Cahill.
Something happened at Khabur Gate, the U.S. military base on the Turkish/Iraqi border, called Harbur Gate by the Americans. Something which was never revealed. Harbur Gate is composed of three plays about three women in the combat zone linked by a single incident. In Orpheus, two Army medics apply for the Purple Heart. In the title piece, Marines Moss and Russo engage in a battle of the sexes in a truck convoy to Mosul. And in Veteran in a New Field, Michelle, a recent Veteran, meets John, a blind painter in a park.
Featuring Arti Ishak, Laurence Stepney, Stephanie Shum, Felipe Carrasco, Debbie Banos, Jay Worthington. With designs by Nicholas Schwartz, Ben White, Barry Bennett, Tony Churchill, Jesse Gaffney, Rachel Sypniwski.
Moderated post-show dialogues follow Thursday and Friday performances.
