AbstractHistoryArchive Description

We now live in an age where every whispered discussion is a potential invitation to terrorism. In 'Concerto for Humans and Semtex' we hear four simultaneous conversations. One will lead to something dire. Which do you listen to? This play examines our fears and reactions to the War on Terror, and explores some of the inconsistencies revealed when we fight against an emotion rather than a nation.
