Directed by Jeffery Sichel
Journeymen Theater

Church Street Theater
1701 Church Street, Washington, D.C.

Featuring: Rich Foucheux

A theatrical reading of a text compiled from our government’s examination of the legality of the practice of water-boarding. From the chairman’s opening statements: “Today we consider a matter that goes to the heart of who we are as a Nation. No one will argue that we live in a dangerous world, that there are people who are organizing to attack our Nation, or that our government must gather reliable intelligence to defend us. All that is obvious. What is at issue is the lengths to which some people acting on our behalf have gone, and what the Office of Legal Counsel has advised our government it may and may not legally do.” Part of Journeymen Theater’s Ethics and War Reading Series.
