By Emmanuel Gomes
Directed by Barbara Waldinger

An idealistic young woman joins an antiwar group violently protesting the Iraq War at a military recruiting station.  There she engages in a heated argument with an army recruiter.  Who is the villain?

Brooklyn-born Emmanuel Gomes has worked as a dairy farmer, fish cutter, obit clerk, park ranger, child-care worker, driving instructor and junior high school teacher.  But writing is his passion. He holds a Masters degree in Writing from SUNY Albany, and is a published poet, literary critic, and freelance writer. Unconventional Warfare is his sixth full-length play.

This event is made possible (in part) with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered through the Twin Counties Cultural Fund in Columbia County by the Columbia County Council on the Arts.
