Albany, NY – America's oil wells are drying up. In fact, some say we are at peak oil production right now. At the same time, China, Russia, and India are starting to consume more oil.

Albany, NY – As the war in Iraq rages on and the death toll rises daily, Theatre 88 will present WHAT I HEARD ABOUT IRAQ, a staged reading of the play that ignited the Los Angeles area. The play was originally adapted for the stage by Simon Levy from Eliot Weinberger's provocative article, "What I Heard About Iraq."
The cast is composed of Albany area theatre professors who are concerned about the war and wish to inspire a thoughtful, enlightened discussion. The reading also interweaves multi media sounds and images from real news footage.
