ACT's fourth production of its 1988 Mainstage Season will be the world premiere of God's Country, a play by Steven Dietz which focuses upon a white supremacist terrorist group.
Commissioned by ACT, Dietz examines the philosophy and activities of the Aryan Nations Church, and explores how ordinary, intelligent people are seduced by extremist movements. Material has been drawn from the dramatic events beginning with the murder of Jewish talk show host Alan Berg, through the death of church member Robert Jay Mathews in the spectacular shoot-out on Whidbey Island, and culminating in the 1985 trial of church members at the U.S. Courthouse in Seattle.
The play will be directed by David Ira Goldstein, who staged ACT’s acclaimed production of Glengarry Glen Ross last season and, most recently, directed The Mystery of Irma Vep at The Empty Space Theatre.
