A year ago, New Yorker writer George Packer wrote an article called "Betrayed," which profiled the local interpreters who worked for the U.S. government in Iraq. Although their employment made them marked men and women in their neighborhoods, Packer found the U.S. did very little to protect them. After 16,000 words, Packer wasn’t done telling their story, so he turned the article into a play. Produced by Alexandra Poolos.
