Winner of the 2014 Horton Foote Prize for Outstanding New American Play and the Inaugural Edward M. Kennedy Award (shared with Tony-winner All The Way). The Body of an American tells the true story of an extraordinary friendship as two men, a war photojournalist and playwright, journey from some of the most dangerous places on earth to the depths of the human soul. Winning rave reviews for its previous productions in London and elsewhere, The Body of an American by Guggenheim Fellow Dan O'Brien is "a play that tightens its grip as it probes where war lives, and discovers we each carry it inside ourselves." (The Guardian) Directed by Obie winner Jo Bonney (Father Comes Home from the Wars..., Lost Girls).
Featuring: Michael Crane (Gloria, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Tony nominee Michael Cumpsty ("Boardwalk Empire," End of the Rainbow).
