On Monday, January 12th, 2009 Matt Dillon and Sarah Jessica Parker joined Refugees International to host a one-night only performance of the critically acclaimed George Packer play, Betrayed, at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater. The play follows the stories of three young Iraqi translators as they risk their lives for Americans in Iraq. The production, and the article in The New Yorker it was based on, drew national attention to the Iraqi refugee crisis. Read more about the evening here .
