“Archduke” By Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli
Written by Pulitzer finalist Rajiv Joseph (“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,” “Guards at the Taj”), “Archduke” follows the unlikely path to terrorism as three strangers, already struggling to get by, receive a death sentence in the form of a tuberculosis diagnosis. But being young men with nothing to lose in Belgrade, 1914, makes them the perfect recruits for a secret organization looking to strike a blow in the name of Serbian nationalism. “Archduke” explores the short journey from individual hardship to public harm as personal desperation is cultivated into an act with international significance and a few average men spark World War I.
