    The Earth's Sharp Edge

    Read the Offoffoff review

    Thaddeus Phillips, while carrying a book titled "Extreme Islam," was detained last summer for a half-day at Newark Airport after returning from Colombia and Morocco. The itinerary itself was suspicious. Never mind that the book was an offhand present he had received in a housepainting job, or that he was in Morocco to study Arabic on a fellowship from the Independence Foundation of Philadelphia. The normally puckish-looking writer/performer/tap dancer was sporting a dark beard and he must have looked fishy. Being a theater person, he is naturally garrulous, and the more he explained, the more suspicious the security guards got — especially about a chapter in the book Phillips was reading about Leila Khaled, the Palestinian terrorist remembered mainly as the Nixon era's most alluring airline hijacker. Amidst his interrogation, he was struck with the realization that he'd found his next play: about a guy who gets stopped by airport security after a visit to Morocco.
