From a media release:

Tarragon Theatre Presents:
This is War
by Hannah Moscovitch
directed by Richard Rose

Premiere
In previews now - Opening Night January 3, 2013

TORONTO -
Tarragon Theatre proudly presents the world premiere of This is War, written by acclaimed Tarragon playwright-in-residence Hannah Moscovitch and directed by Artistic Director Richard Rose. This is War opens January 3 and runs to February 3, 2013 in Tarragon Theatre’s Extra Space (with previews from December 28). Tickets range from $27-$53 (inclusive of HST) and are available by calling the box office at  416.531.1827  or by visiting www.tarragontheatre.com.

It is 2008. Canadian Forces are holding Panjwaii, the most volatile region of Afghanistan, with very little support from NATO-ISAF. Captain Stephen Hughes is always looking for the next threat, knowing it can come at any time from any direction. Four different perspectives emerge as three soldiers and a medic are interviewed by an unseen journalist about a critical event.

Hannah Moscovitch is one of the most prolific playwrights of her generation and considered one of the strongest voices in the country. Her Governor General-nominated East of Berlin premiered at Tarragon to great acclaim, and toured successfully for two seasons. This prodigious young talent’s most recent play, The Children’s Republic, premiered at Tarragon in the 2011–12 season to rave reviews.

Lisa Berry (CanStage/Obsidian Theatre’s Intimate Apparel, Shaw Festival’s The Crucible) as Master Corporal Tanya Young, Ari Cohen (Tarragon’s The Little Years, Soulpepper’s Death of a Salesman-Dora nomination) as Captain Stephen Hughes, Sergio Di Zio (Tarragon’s Scorched, Leo; CTV’s Flashpoint) as medic Sergeant Chris Anders and Ian Lake (Stratford Festival’s Elektra, Cymbeline and more) as Private Jonny Henderson star in this fictionalized version of a real incident taken from the pages of the controversial Afghanistan conflict and Canada’s role in it.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
