Based on actual events, 9 Circles follows the fictional character of Daniel Reeves after his discharge from military service during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Charged with war crimes during his tenure in Iraq, Reeves encounters different lawyers, a pastor and a psychiatrist as he navigates through each circle, akin to traveling the same path in Dante's Inferno.The play is described as an "emotional journey from dark to light."

Tickets will also be available in the lobby of Nickerson Hall outside the Black Box Theater each night starting at 6:45 p.m. Seating is limited, and patrons are encouraged to arrive early. 9 Circles is for mature audiences only.

Tickets are $7 for students, $10 for faculty, staff, senior citizens and military and $12 for general public. There will be a public talk back after the Wednesday night performance.
