Directed by Richard Rose, and co-starring Lisa Berry, Hannah Moscovitch’s This Is War plays at Toronto’s Tarragon Theatre until Feb. 3.
Tarragon’s website provides the following synopsis for the stage production:
It is 2008. Canadian Forces are holding Panjwaii, the most volatile region of Afghanistan, with very little support from NATO-ISAF. Captain Stephen Hughes is always looking for the next threat, knowing it can come at any time from any direction. He just didn’t expect it would come from within.
Berry (Combat Hospital, Nikita) plays the role of Master Corporal Tanya Young, and star alongside co-stars Ari Cohen, Sergio DiZio and Ian Lake.
