Palace of the End
by Judith Thompson
Directed by Daniella Topol
Original Music and Sound by Katie Down

Palace of the End is a searing triptych of monologues exposing the ugly truth behind the headlines of the
current situation in Iraq. It provides three distinct perspectives on the reality of the war: that of a young American soldier imprisoned for her misconduct at a prison camp in Iraq; a British microbiologist and weapons inspector who exposes the false justifications for war; and an Iraqi mother whose life is destroyed first by Saddam Hussein’s regime and then by the American invasion. Each account is a riveting indictment of one of the contemporary world’s worst conflicts and also a celebration of the music of the human voice and the power of the human soul.
