    Heartland

    This play was written by Gabriel Jason Dean as a direct response to the true story of the U.S. government’s textbook propaganda contributing to the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan. This play draws a line from the Cold War to the war on terror and is a story of healing, grace, and connection. This play stars Lowell Bartholomee, Kareem Badr, and Kacey Samiee – directed by Rudy Ramirez for the Vortex. And here's the scoop on the playwright and the play's origins. For the love of all that might be holy, don't miss it.
    Thu.-Sun., Jan. 17-Feb. 9, 8pm. $15-35.
