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)
