Diplomacy by Tim Carlson

This was the world premiere production. The play is published by Talon Books.

Diplomacy delves into the heart of the most fractious debate facing the country: Are we a nation of peacekeepers or a nation of warriors? Is there a middle ground? International politics infuse the personal politics between four Canadians whose lives were defined by the Vietnam War and now struggle to position themselves in the present.

In a handsome production by Western Theatre Conspiracy, Diplomacy unfolds as a nuanced back-and-forth debate about Canada’s military role in Afghanistan.
