Event Description

I’d Like to Buy an Enemy – Harrisonburg, VA

Special chance to see a live performance of I'd Like to Buy an Enemy (sponsored by Everence): a hilarious and poignant satire from Ted Swartz (Ted&Co) that explores peace, justice, and the American way… Starring James Madison University's (JMU) Ingrid DeSanctis and FairField Center's Timothy Ruebke, this thought-provoking show allows us to laugh at ourselves, while engaging us to consider the influence of America's highly militarized presence in the world, to confront the fear that drives our culture, and to consider how we can work for peace and justice in the U.S. and globally.

WHO: Everyone. Yes, that means YOU! For this performance, we are inviting students and the general public to please join participants of the Peace & Justice Studies Association's national conference (held this year at JMU)

WHAT: Original comedy satire, "I'd Like to Buy an Enemy"

COSTFREE to all - thanks to the generous underwriting of Everence!

WHERE: JMU Festival Conference and Student Center - Ballroom A

WHEN: Friday October 16, 2015 from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m.

WHY: In the spirit of Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert, and Monty Python, “I’d Like to Buy an Enemy” dives deep into the sacred waters of seriously funny theater. Satire by its nature, holds up the foibles of a society and shines a light on them, so by laughing at them we demystify and de-power them.
