Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, Rice, Blair.

To some people, that reads like the roll-call of the damned; to others, it's simply the individuals who brought about the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.

But to director Joel Greenberg's cast, currently in rehearsal for the Tuesday night opening of the controversial play, Stuff Happens, those are the roles they've got to portray.

The title, of course, comes from then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's comment on the pillaging and destruction that followed the conquest of Baghdad.

"Stuff happens," he said with infamous aplomb, "and it's untidy and freedom's untidy and free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things."

I wish I could see this play which is premiering in Canada. No mention where it will perform, other than Toronto, of course.
