THE BIRTHDAY BOYStheatre · belz road productions · Ages 13+ · world premiere · 90 mins ·
During an unheard-of infiltration of the Al Asad green zone, regarded as one of the safest bases in Iraq, terrorists capture three U.S. Marines. At a remote warehouse, bound and blindfolded, the three soldiers must struggle with fear, betrayal and even boredom, morale and humor often their only allies against an uncertain fate.
Tense, hilarious, and frequently heart-wrenching, “The Birthday Boys” keeps us guessing and at the edge our seats, as we barrel towards a shocking climax. A play about honor and redemption, unaffiliated with any partisan politics, “The Birthday Boys” is the biggest surprise of this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival.
