Description

Based on a true story, Airport Insecurity follows the mishaps of a traveler who loses his identification papers at a German airport. The red tape of citizenship was also a problem for Tom Hanks' character in The Terminal. But unlike Steven Spielberg's 2004 film, Vikas Dhurka's play doesn't even allow his Indian protagonist to board a plane, let alone arrive back home in the United States. Despite his work visa, and a pregnant wife about to give birth in Silicon Valley, this tech worker is considered suspect because of his country of origin. By making the story recognizably human, the play is a timely reflection of American anxieties about difference and misguided travel bans. (JE)
