The New York Times once declared playwright Peter Morris one of a new generation of “angry young men” in British theatre. It was a partial goof – Morris is, in fact, a Yank – but the playwright’s passion and explosive search for moral truth in a dishonest age is clear and impressive. Look for no finer example than Guardians, the tour de force two-hander that topped the Edinburgh Fringe Fest before wowing New York. An unflinching look at the images of war, the play tells the tale of two scandals: the infamous snapshots from Abu Ghraib prison; and the strikingly similar photos of English soldiers, published by a London tabloid but later revealed as fakes. In dueling monologues that mix irony and warmth, a disgraced American soldier tells her story while a crafty English journalist spins his own version during this dynamite production at Angel Island Theater.
