Clifford Chase' scathingly funny novel Winkie is brought to life by the Drama Desk Award-winning Godlight Theatre Company. When a mild mannered teddy bear finds himself on the wrong side of America's War on Terror, he becomes trapped inside the jaws of a society rabid with fear and paranoia. Is Winkie the evil mastermind behind dozens of terrorist attacks? Or is he an innocent scapegoat for zealots on both sides of the terror wars? An emotionally gripping and intellectually compelling exploration of the absurdities of our post-9/11 age.
