Guthrie sets dates for Afghanistan play
The theater shuffles its 2010 schedule, including one cancellation and the addition of a new play.

"The Great Game: Afghanistan," a much-heralded work by Britain's Tricycle Theatre, will play a three-week run beginning Sept. 29 in the McGuire Proscenium Stage, the theater announced Tuesday.
