About Blanket of Fear

Charged with aiding and abetting a foreign terrorist organization, an incarcerated grade school teacher, her immigrant mother-in-law, and her public defender must search for answers in their past to avert a foreboding future.

First devised and produced in 2003 as a direct response to the culture of fear fueled by 9/11/2001, "Blanket of Fear" explores the stories of three women profoundly impacted by America's so-called "war on terror." The play follows Julia, arrested at the airport with her husband, being held and suspected of terrorist conspiracy. The incarceration ensnares Julia, her Iranian mother-in-law, and her Afro-Cuban defense attorney into a web of personal, cultural, and national identity crises.
