Stress Positions:A New Play by Daniel Sweren-Becker

The Play

America tortures – that much we know. But what has this policy wrought on its perpetrators? Stress Positions examines what happens to a man, and a country, when the boundaries of morality and humanity have been legislated away.

A desperate Army Colonel will confront a detainee who won’t break. And as both men reach the limits of their endurance, their struggle will reveal that the trauma of torture can have shocking consequences.
