The role of Ali by Bobby Naderi was delivered extraordinarily awesome, seamless and organic. The role of Bill by David Bennett needs work, too much screaming and yelling without emotion. He looked too groomed to be in a jail cell.
Note to the costume designer Monica Hummel: These guys were prisoners of war. Their clothes looked way too clean to be in a jail cell. Maybe some dirt on their clothes would help make this play more real.
Also, I've never seen a jail cell looking so clean. lol

In modern day Iraq, two soldiers, an American and an Iraqi, find themselves in adjacent cells in a Baghdad prison. Alone and confused about how they got there, they explore their situation, share their stories, and learn about one another and what led them to this place in their lives. While their co-existence is far from simple, and while they find themselves relying on each other for survival, they begin to realize that they have a lot more in common than what their separate worlds have led them to believe.
