Blending quotes and actual events with fictional dialogue, The Crossroads Country dramatizes the last thirty years of Afghan history up to and including the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent invasion. Merging international intrigue with the life of a single Afghan family the play utilizes humour and music as a backdrop to the international catalysts that conceived, created, and implemented the birth of global terror. Why did the Soviets invade Afghanistan? Why did the Americans fund the Jihad? Why did Osama bin Laden go to Afghanistan? Who funded the Taliban? And why was Massoud killed two days before 9/11? With over a hundred historical characters and well over a thousand quotes The Crossroads Country is a fast paced political play that provides an open door to anyone interested in current events as a detailed overview of Afghan history to students of this era and an innovative, informative, and entertaining theatrical experience.
