Archduke

April 18 - May 28, 2017

Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Rajiv Joseph makes a welcome return to the Mark Taper forum with a world premiere drama, that takes us back to the cause of the First World War. Looking behind the headlines of Archduke Franz Ferdinand's assassination, and the events leading up to it, the troubling rise of nationalism and terrorism draws similar and worrying parrallels with today's global populism. Shot through with Joseph 's characteristic black humor, we are invited to ask ourselves; what gives a country its identity?
