CPT presents the new comedy Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them! Ohio and Regional Premiere!

CPT presents the first production outside of New York of Christopher Durang's hilarious new work Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them, onstage in the Gordon Square Theatre from October 15 - October 31 (Preview performances October 15 and 16, Opening Night: Saturday, October 17).

The always absurd and sometimes offensive Durang turns political humor upside down with a raucous and provocative satire about America's growing homeland insecurity. Honing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang reveals our fears in this bizarre black comedy for an era of yellow, orange, and red alerts. Don't miss the regional premiere of this hilarious and sometimes disturbing new work.
