One prediction can be made with certainty: 9/12 will be full of passion, drama, humor, and the complexities of man's warring nature. The overall message, however, will be one of hope and redemption. Eason, a writer who's been with the Romero Theater Troupe since its 2005 inception, is banking on a positive outcome. As he says via an email message, "9/12 is about staring the ugliness of global injustice, poverty, exploitation, ignorance, intolerance - and the wars, cruelty, profiteering, human suffering and death that has resulted from these - squarely in the face and saying, 'We have had enough. We can do better.' In this sense, the Iraq War is only the latest in a history of poorly justified and misguided wars in which the United States has participated. 9/12 is about expressing our frustration and disgust surrounding the current situation, but also our hope and confidence - our insistence - on a better future and better ways."
