The tale of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks that has transpired in recent months, and especially the events of the past couple of weeks, has played out like a dramatic thriller. It now seems somewhat inevitable that someone will eventually portray Assange and WikiLeaks, literally, using political theater. How might a dramatic retelling of these already-dramatic events work out?
Jim Fitzmorris, a playwright and professor of theater history and literature at Tulane University, believes it would be a terrific play. "Assange is almost the perfect character for this role," he said.
