Hollywood, CA – A Message from a Dying Soldier is a non-partisan look at politics, politicians, and anyone who remembers voting for change, performed by Brian Allman. This provocative piece was inspired by Tomas Young’s letter to George Bush & Dick Cheney on the 10th Anniversary of the Iraq War. A soldier in Iraq, Young was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in Sadir City in 2004. He is currently living under hospice care in Kansas City, MO.
Young’s final letter condemns the Bush administration for severely botching the Iraq War, asking for the prosecution of President Bush and Vice-President Cheney for “war crimes, plunder, and finally, murder, the murder of thousands of young Americans, [Young’s] fellow veterans, whose futures [Bush & Cheney] stole.”
A one-man performance in the 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival, A Message from a Dying Soldier raises some jarring questions about the current state of American and global politics.
It is a piece bound to raise some conservative eyebrows, but don’t expect only right wing bashing. Brian Allman and his upstart production company, Rabbits 2 U, deftly critique a wide range of Washington D.C. hypocrisies. As a graduate from UCLA’s MFA program in Theatre, Film & Television, and as a College Instructor, Allman wrote this show to remind the American people that we do not, in fact, live in a 2-party system. We have other choices.
The show is a variety act performance, drawing not only upon Tomas Young’s powerful letter but also upon an assortment of other related issues. It mixes together raw, character driven acting, improvisation, dark humor and performance art. Regardless of your political leanings, it will leave you curious and wanting more.

And for some quick insight into the diversity represented in our political hot seats, scroll through the Senators list until you get to the only non-Caucasian person in the mix, Republican Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina.
Yes, that’s right. There is only 1 person in our US Senate right now that ISN’T white.
Welcome to the land of freedom and equality.
