The New World Order

This political play, about what the United States has in store for the rest of the world, was written a few years after the original Gulf War in 1991. The chief characters in the play are Lieutenant John McRae (“In Flanders Fields”), Salvador Allende (president of Chile in the early 1970s, shot and killed in a military coup), Jan Masaryk (Czech foreign minister assassinated by communist agents in 1948), Mohammad Mossadegh (Iranian prime minister, overthrown by a CIA-engineered coup in 1953), and Jacobo Arbenz (president of Guatemala, also overthrown by CIA machinations, in 1954).

The New World Order was produced in Vancouver in the spring of 1999 by Theatre-in-the-Raw and captivated audiences.
