Quotes & Highlights

9 Circles is full of contradictions, the kind that keep an audience leaning forward, drawn irresistibly into the swirling drama. In the riveting Publick Theatre production now at the Plaza Theatre, Boston Center for the Arts, one young man goes from murderer to victim, veteran to villain, all in the course of a taut 105 minutes.” –Boston Globe

Description

Written by Bill Cain

Directed by Eric Engel and featuring Amanda Collins*, Will McGarrahan* and Jimi Stanton

*member Actors’ Equity Association

Publick Theatre Boston presents the East Coast premiere of 9 Circles. This timely and dazzling new play by the founder of Boston Shakespeare Company stunned the San Fransisco Bay Area, and played to sold-out houses in its world premiere last October.

A psychological thriller based on actual events, _9 Circles _tells the story of a young American soldier on trial for his life. Daniel Reeves is arrested for a crime allegedly committed in Iraq. Desperate to remain a soldier, he is forced to navigate a labyrinth of commanding officers, public defenders, lawyers, preachers and military psychiatrists.

In language by turns shocking, mesmerizing and bitingly funny, 9 Circles speaks directly to a nation still at war, asking penetrating questions about the nature and consequence of war and what it means to be human.
