“Witness”, a One-Act Play by John O'Brien

This year the Theatre of Relativity brings to life another morality play by our late friend John O'Brien: two teachers, one bad student, a thorny situation. What's the right thing to do? It's an ethical dilemma! The cast will be made up of Jason Taylor and Jim Loutzenhiser. This staged reading is being directed by Michelle Markarian.

Afterward will come discussion of the play, then an open mike to tell some John O'Brien stories, read a few of his poems and generally remember John.

Where: Paramount Theater • 560 Washington St • Downtown Crossing T • Boston

March 20, 2003. A date that the ordinary people of Iraq will never forget. A day that changed their lives forever. In June 2008, the award-winning creators of "The Exonerated" traveled to Jordan to find out firsthand what happened to the Iraqi civilians who fled in the wake of the Iraq War. Blank and Jensen interviewed some 35 people—a cross-section of lives interrupted—who fled the chaos and violence that befell Iraqi society for the relative safety of Jordan.
