a new play by Winter Miller





July 8-27


Lali and Beng are held captive.

No one knows where they’ve been taken or if they’re alive. Or, maybe their story has been broadcast to the world?

A story about intimacy, surrender, and the will to live.

Why Now

What if you lost your freedom in an instant, waking in a cell with another person? Where are you? Will you see your family again? These were the questions that have kept me up at night, as violence against journalists worldwide and here in the U.S. has visibly risen. In December 2018, the group Reporters Without Borders (RSF) announced the U.S. is now the 5th most dangerous country in the world, after Afghanistan, Syria, Mexico and Yemen and in a tie with India! Most people are shocked when you tell them that. In total, RSF recorded 80 journalists murdered in 2018; 61% of whom were targeted for their reporting, and an additional 348 detained and 60 held hostage. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) reported the number of journalists ”killed in reprisals for their work nearly doubled worldwide compared to 2017.” This should terrify you if you care about freedom.

Our president has barred journalists from press coverage, called the press “The enemy of the American people,” and encouraged violence against journalists. The U.N. expressed fear that Trump’s attacks against the press “increase the risk of journalists being targeted with violence.”

I believe that for us to look away, to pretend this violence and censorship will abate and we will have a free press is to do so at our own peril, and at great risk to others worldwide in much less secure circumstances.

I never intended to be a producer or a director, but I didn’t want to wait any longer; the time is now for this play.
