In War as in Games with Edouard Elvis Bvouma

Part of PEN World Voices

Written by Edouard Elvis Bvouma (Cameroon), translated by Heather Jeanne Denyer, directed by Gisela Cardenas

After learning that the war is over, a lonely child soldier with a Kalashnikov tells a young girl the story of his life. For him, it is nothing more than a video game with animated characters.

Presented by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, The Graduate Center CUNY.
