Linfield to host Iraq War play
Linfield College will host a theatrical reading of the new play “Broken Stones” on Monday, April 28.
The free reading will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Marshall Theatre in Ford Hall. Directed by Stephanie Mulligan, it will feature Linfield alumni and current students.
"Broken Stones” was written by Fin Kennedy to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War. It is focused on the looting of priceless relic from the Baghdad Museum during the height of the war.
The play was supported by the Arts Council England and developed by Portland Center Stage as a part of the 2012 JAW Festival.
