Flags – Iraq War play by Jane Martin

Charles Isherwood: 

As fake news announcers (three flat-screen televisions adorn the stage), they segue from enumerating the latest stats from Iraq to announcing the sales of Harry Potter books. In graver voices, they intone things like:

When our children
in service to slogans perish
Do we mourn them
Knowing they died well?
And are we comforted?
