@ Mile Square Theatre
Tuesday, March 19, 2019 7:30pm

MileSquare PlayGround is a partnership between Mile Square Theatre in Hoboken and Writers Theatre of New Jersey in
Madison. Three Tuesdays of Concert Readings of New Work at Mile Square Theatre in Hoboken
After Rome takes place over the course of an afternoon at the Trattoria Europa in Rome on
April 5, 2017, the 25th anniversary of the start of the Bosnian War. Lara a Bosnian professor of linguistics visiting Rome for a
conference, seeks out her closest childhood friend, Anna, now an Italian resident and proprietor of Trattoria Europa. Anna had
experienced Bosnia throughout the war while Lara had left at the beginning of the conflict in pursuit of an academic career.
Neither woman has seen or been in contact with the other in twenty-five years. When Lara and Anna reunite at Anna’s
establishment, the women engage in emotional discourse related to the origins of their parting, their Muslim heritage, Anna’s
identity as an immigrant, Lara’s life in post-war Bosnia, the men they loved, and the city and people they lost.
