Cornell Theatre: “Why Torture is Wrong, and People Who Love Them”

The Cornell College Department of Theatre and Dance invites audiences to “Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them” by Christopher Durang.  Directed by Janeve West, this production offers a comic critique on violence and untested political paranoia, and promises to be as absurdly hilarious as it is timely.  Each night before the show and at intermission, audiences are invited to enjoy the lobby display and cash bar.
