Description This play compares post September 11 America with Nazi Germany a long and contorversial bow...America's version of world domination is far more economic.The story is told through the fall from grace of a charismatic expatriate Aussie lecturer Talbot,whose career and life disintegrate following his questioning of why America has become a target.Sewell manages to show the biggest nightmare for democracy wasn't the two towers collapsing but the meltdown of civil liberties and white-hot anger that followed.
