The 2019 Christopher Durang Season conclude with the political comedy, Why Torture Is Wrong, And The People Who Love Them. Durang turns political humor upside down with this raucous and provocative satire about America's growing homeland "insecurity." Why Torture Is Wrong, And The People Who Love Them tells the story of a young woman suddenly in crisis: Is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Is her father's hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Why does her mother enjoy going to the theatre so much? Does she seek mental escape, or is she insane? Honing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang oddly relieves our fears in this black comedy for an era of yellow, orange and red alerts.
