About the play: A young Iraqi-American actor is hired by a company making a film about a tragic incident which occurred in Baghdad. He is overjoyed, even though it means traveling to Iraq to make the film. However, when the lines between reality and fiction become blurred, his dream of being a movie star devolves into a dark comedy of errors.
