Show Description

As a foreign war correspondent, Marina (Maggie Siff) has put her life on the line to illuminate the darkest corners of humanity. Having just returned from a particularly bloody conflict, she flirts with staying home for good—alongside her cameraman turned lover (Louis Ozawa). With her closest friends and family gathered on the eve of her lifetime achievement award ceremony, she decides to cap this glorious moment with an elopement. But as Marina tries to take hold of her life, she’s forced to reckon with the hold war has on her. 

Breaking the Story is a darkly funny and fiery drama presented by Second Stage Theater about the cost of war and the audacity of those frontliners armed with only a press badge.
