Reckoning with Torture

What’s at stake when a government condones torture? From the frontlines of the war on terror comes a one-of-a-kind performance/installation event directed for the stage by Doug Liman.

Exposed through declassified government documents and interviews with former detainees are the scope and human cost of the post-9/11 U.S. torture program.

Acclaimed writers and artists, including Paul Auster, Sandra Cisneros, Alex Gibney, Annie Proulx, Marilynne Robinson, Esmeralda Santiago, George Saunders, and Noami Wolfjoin former CIA agent Jack Rice and former military interrogator Matthew Alexander to take part in this special event organized by the ACLU and the PEN American Center, with original artwork by Jenny Holzer.
