“One of them went on the anti-war protest, shouted their lungs out, then got horrendously and staggeringly drunk. The other stayed home, watched TV for a bit, and thought about the future.
A touching and funny play about what happens when you hate your best friend."
In the play, a looming government intervention in a foreign war drives a wedge between two good friends leading their relationship to a breaking point where they are forced to reevaluate what they really owe each other in their friendship. The story touches on themes of military intervention, conflicting ideologies between loved ones, substance abuse, the lack of mental health access, and the spiraling of a friendship.
Given the current state of our world with the ever-present divisiveness due to things like politics and policies, Covid, the lack of accessibility to mental health resources, and the ongoing conflict between Russia and the Ukraine, An Intervention is the perfect conduit to viewing these important issues through the lens of art.
This play contains, addresses, and references sensitive subject matters such as substance abuse, suicide, gun violence and war.
