A man responsible
for a large-scale terrorist attack is the main
character in a play in which he meets an American author.
Terre Haute, written by gay author Edmund White,
is about a Timothy McVeigh-inspired character named
Harrison as he approaches his execution in Terre
Haute, Ind. The bond between Harrison and the author,
named James (modeled after Gore Vidal), becomes stronger
as his death sentence nears. In real life McVeigh and Vidal
corresponded while McVeigh was in prison, but they
never met in person.
The play opened
in London May 8 and will play through June 2 at
the Trafalgar Studios 2. (The Advocate)
