Before All The Torture

I really liked Christopher Durang’s Why Torture Is Wrong, And The People Who Love Them, which had its first preview at The Public tonight. The cast was strong; my favorite was Amir Arison as Zamir. His character is a slightly more evolved version of Buck from Betty’s Summer Vacation. Durang is really good at writing horny young straight dudes!

Since I’m a jerk, I will spoil everything: the final scene brings its characters back to a time before all the torture began.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the audience could get the same thing?

Update 4/1/09: I suppose I shouldn’t worry about spoilers if Durang says more than I do in interviews with The Village Voice and Playbill.
