ABOUT THE PLAY:

➩ Blanket of Fear explores the stories of three women profoundly impacted by America’s “War on Terror.”

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 secure an unknown future.

Over the past 20 years, The Tribes Project—the Seattle-based theatre organization and creative force behind Blanket of Fear—has explored themes of race and global affairs through the performing arts, bringing together local voices from various backgrounds into a unique creative process.

Each cast member in Blanket of Fear’s all-woman ensemble were brought into a collaboration that wove their individual perspectives—Iranian American, Afro-Cuban American, and European American—into a dramatic web of political and personal intrigue. As a result, Blanket of Fear is classic Tribes Project: a character-driven narrative anchored by dynamic movement, visuals, and music.

This production is a diverse group of women’s reactions to the casualties of fear. Blanket of Fear offers an honest and powerful statement by refusing to over-simplify our complicated world. Without offering clear solutions—or even the complete details of the arrest—the audience is left with the questions the characters must face:

➩ What is justice — and what is truth — within the veiled world of counterterrorism?
