"United Nations: The Other West," written and directed by Bossert, is an outstanding example of the hybrid theatrical system he has created. This production is an extension of his 2022 "United Nations: The Border and The Coast" with connections to stories streamed on Thirdwing’s internet platform. This form of theatrical production aims to bridge theater and film in a way that tells important stories that pierce the limitations of traditional theater and allow for a more expansive exploration of characters and themes. Bossert’s direction of an exceptional ensemble delivers an entertaining evening of theatre with humor and important ideas. This is not derivative of any other production; it stands alone as a play worth seeing.

“...it has a script by Cameron Darwin Bossert that transcends space and fills it with a plethora of intelligence and a great grasp and comprehension of international affairs. It is smart, funny, serious, uplifting, irreverent, insulting, educational, depressing, and extremely thought provoking, so much so that you’ll be contemplating the ideas and view points expressed on stage for a long time to come.”
