THE BIRTHDAY BOYS
Written by Aaron Kozak

September 15 - 25, 2011

"...a high-tension, clock-ticking-away dramatic thriller” -- LAist

WINNER, the Best World Premiere Award &
the LA Theatre Review Critics Choice Award
,
2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival

Set in 2006 Iraq, three U.S. Marines are captured by insurgents during an unheard-of infiltration of the Al Asad Airbase, regarded as one of the safest bases in the country. At a remote warehouse, bound and blindfolded, the three soldiers must struggle with fear, betrayal and even boredom, leaving morale as their only ally against an uncertain fate.  Alternately tense and hilarious, The Birthday Boys offers a riveting, non-partisan look at honor and redemption.
