What’s at stake when a government condones torture? From the frontlines of the war on terror comes a one-of-a-kind performance/installation event directed for the stage by Doug Liman. Exposed through declassified government documents and interviews with former detainees are the scope and human cost of the post-9/11 U.S. torture program. America Ferrera, Paul Auster, Annie Proulx, Alex Gibney, George Saunders, Naomi Wolf, Esmeralda Santiago, Sandra Cisneros, Jack Rice, Matt Alexander, and other internationally-acclaimed writers and artists join former CIA and military officials to take part in this special event organized by the ACLU and the PEN American Center, with original artwork by Jenny Holzer.
