Aurin Squire's "Friendly Fire" at Blackboard Reading Series Monday, October 13th

The Blackboard Reading Series asked for a political play and got one: Aurin Squire's "Friendly Fire."

AURIN SQUIRE is an award-winning playwright and screenwriter from Opa Locka, Florida. His plays have been produced over 30 times in the last few years and won numerous awards in Florida, New York, and Illinois. He graduated with honors from Northwestern University and completed his MFA at the Actors Studio Drama School. In the past he's worked as a radio journalist, magazine editor and crime reporter for publications like Chicago Tribune and Miami Herald. His cartoon series,, is based around the Brooklyn neighborhood where he currently lives. Bodega Ave. has been featured on LATV, Catalina, Ambiente, and the New York Daily News.

Disgruntled and dismissed, an embittered veteran group of intelligence and defense workers begin playing a hypothetical game of revenge that quickly spins out of control. "Friendly Fire" is a dark comedy that takes aim at this nation's biggest threat in the 21st century: ourselves.

There will be a twenty minute talk-back following the reading.
