World-Premiere Political Thriller

Intelligence

  • Credits

    By Jacqueline E. Lawton

    Directed by Daniella Topol

Inspired by true events, Intelligence is a fictionalized account of a covert operative who, tasked with protecting the national security of the United States post-9/11, is racing to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq when the unthinkable happens. With the country at war, her cover is blown and she must navigate a media frenzy, the CIA’s search for answers and her diplomat husband’s dogged pursuit of the truth. Intelligence is a political thriller that explores the cost of deception and the consequences of speaking truth to power.

Intelligence is generously sponsored by Charles Schwab and NEA Art Works.

The real, living people depicted in Intelligence (specifically Valerie Plame and Joseph Wilson) did not authorize the writing of this play, nor did they participate in or otherwise give consent or approval of this production. Certain dramatic elements have been added to the documented facts.
