The Birthday Boys
Written by Aaron Kozak
EXTENDED- THEATRE ASYLUM BEST OF FRINGE
Thursdays - Sundays, September 16 - October 3, 2010 at 8:00pm
August 11, 2010 ' Insurgents capture three U.S. Marines during an unheard-of infiltration of the Al Asad Airbase, regarded as one of the safest bases in Iraq, At a remote warehouse, bound and blindfolded, the three soldiers must struggle with fear, betrayal and even boredom, leaving morale and humor their only allies against an uncertain fate.
Tense, hilarious, and frequently heart-wrenching, ÃÂ¢Ã,ÂÃ,ÂThe Birthday BoysÃÂ¢Ã,ÂÃ,Â keeps us guessing on the edge our seats, as we barrel towards a shocking climax. A non-partisan play about honor and redemption, ÃÂ¢Ã,ÂÃ,ÂThe Birthday BoysÃÂ¢Ã,ÂÃ,Â is the biggest surprise of this yearÃÂ¢Ã,ÂÃ,Âs Hollywood Fringe Festival.
