'Heads' is the story of a British Embassy worker, an American engineer, a network journalist and a freelance photographer who are being held captive in Iraq; as death draws close, each hostage must decide what he’ll do to survive.Denver Post has a review up although it's not clear what the reviewer really felt about the play - to see or not to see - it's not clear.
