Final Performances! “Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them”

Through October 9 at the Schaeffer Black Box Theater

This is the final weekend to see Christopher Durang’s political satire Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them, presented by Hofstra University’s Department of Drama and Dance at the Schaeffer Black Box Theater. 

Written at the end of the Bush years (but arguably more relevant today), Durang pushes the boundaries of political satire with this piece he calls, “a comic catharsis.”  Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them is a perfect outing during this election season.

Remaining show times are Friday and Saturday, October 7 and 8, at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, October 9, at 2 p.m.. The Schaeffer Black Box Theater is located at Hofstra’s New Academic Building on the South Campus.

Members of the Hofstra community receive up to two free tickets upon presentation of a current HofstraCard. Tickets are $10; $8 senior citizen (over 65) or matriculated non-Hofstra student with ID. For tickets call the Hofstra Box Office at (516) 463-6644 or visit
