Travels with a Masked Man, by John Hadden, is a play about deception, “the game” (espionage), and rough filial love. It is an hour-long solo performance based on his book, Conversations with a Masked Man: My Father, the CIA, and Me .
Haunted by unanswered questions about his childhood overseas, a man confronts his father, an ex-CIA chief who ruminates darkly on the American Empire, the human animal, and himself. Alternately horrifying and hilarious, their verbal contest covers Cold War material from Vietnam to the Middle East and the Bomb, from abstract art to James Bond films, with a steady undercurrent of family politics. John Hadden (senior) was an early member of CIA in Berlin, Hamburg and Salzburg, he was the station chief in Israel during the 60’s, through the Six-Day War, and he ran the “Middle East Desk” in Washington, DC until his quasi-retirement in the early 70s.

The Maurice Sendak Matching Grant
at Hubbard Hall – YOU DID IT!!!
We are THRILLED to announce that we’ve blown past our goal to match the Maurice Sendak Foundation’s gift of $15,000, to the tune of approximately $21,000 in gifts and pledges. Given online, through the mail, and often as walk-ins to the office, this support again shows that this community, locally and nationally, values Hubbard Hall and all that we do. What’s more, we’re also happy to share that the vast majority of this total comes from gifts of $100 or less, again demonstrating that every gift matters – and that, together, we can do great things. Thank you again for your tremendous support. We look forward to seeing you on campus and throughout the community soon.
Sincerely and gratefully,
David A. Snider
Executive Artistic Director
