If the Iraq War came to Soho today, would you be ready to fight? Test your mettle when the International WOW Company, frequent promulgators of political drama, calls you to serve at their latest theatrical experiment Surrender. In this participatory piece, audience members enact "the training, deployment to Iraq, and return of a platoon of soldiers," and instead of a playbill, you'll receive fatigues, boots, and a replica M-4 rifle. Combat training, a simulated battle, a stint at Walter Reed, and several military funerals ensue. Josh Fox directs while Jason Christopher Hartley supplies the military experience.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m.; Sundays, 4 p.m. Starts: Oct. 25. Continues through Nov. 16, 2008
