March 20, 2003. A date that the ordinary people of Iraq will never forget. In June 2008, two theatre makers were commissioned by New York Theatre Workshop to travel to Jordan to find out firsthand what happened to the Iraqi civilians as a result of the events that began on that fateful day. They interviewed some 35 people-a cross-section of lives interrupted-who fled the chaos and violence that befell Iraqi society for the relative safety of Jordan. Following the visit to Amman, Jessica and Erik crafted their conversations with the Iraqis and turned them into an unforgettable theatrical event.
