Dirt--

by Robert Schneider

directed by David Robinson

by jordan craven 

"I start with the premise that the war was important. Even necessary. When one compares the pictures of the great American cities with the pictures of our cities. The pictures of the beautiful people with pale skin. Then the war has meaning. That's the premise I start with." - Dirt excerpt ---- Dirt is a 75 minute monologue. Sad is its narrator. A desperately alienated illegal immigrant from Iraq, Sad lives on the fringes of Western society. He confronts xenophobia, latent racism, and ethnocentrism as he peddles roses to eke out an existence. Issues of identity, anti-foreign sentiment, and self-worth are brought hauntingly to life through the character's disturbing pychological self-portrait. Sad's gripping, heart-wrenching monologue by Austrian novelist and playwright Robert Schneider is as highly relevant today in New York city in 2008 as it was in Vienna where it was published over 15 years ago.
