Innocent Woman Faces Terror Trial in Blanket of Fear
When Julia, a grade school teacher, is arrested at an airport and charged with aiding and abetting a terrorist organization, she is thrown into a legal purgatory that also ensnares her mother and the attorney representing her. First produced in 2003 in response to the climate of paranoia and government overreach following the 9/11 attacks, Blanket of Fear explores how America's so-called "war on terror" upends the lives of three different women. Following Julia's arrest, her Iranian mother-in-law is also ensared by the authorities, and together with their Afro-Cuban defense attorney the three women must navigate a web of personal, cultural and national identity crises. This gripping production by a five-woman cast comes to Seattle's Eulalie Scandiuzzi Space.
