Written and Performed by Jeff Key
Directed by Yuval Hadadi

U.S. Marine Jeff Key transforms his Iraq journal into a gritty, humorous and poetic solo performance about going to war as a 34-year-old gay man at the heady start of the Iraq invasion. 

Opening with 9/11, traveling through the Iraqi desert and finally 'coming out' on CNN, The Eyes of Babylon is a personal, poignant story of one brave Marine's personal battle with the war, his country, and himself.
