"My husband Terry Jastrow's novel forces the reader to ask the question what is the responsibility of the average citizen to hold our leaders responsible for unnecessary wars and to remind us that every life matters. As a human rights activist and  Founder of Artists for Human Rights I am very proud to introduce his compelling novel to you. " ... Anne

Early Reviews:

“Terry Jastrow’s debut novel – simultaneously fictional and historically compelling – pulsates a throbbing plot and quintessential questions of the criminality of the Iraq War. With precision and passion, rare intelligence and journalistic integrity, The Trial of Prisoner 043 delivers Bush to The Hague’s ICC (International Criminal Court) to be tried for war crimes.”
—The Review Broads

“By now, it should be clear that The Trial of Prisoner 043 is no ordinary political thriller. The kinds of questions it raises, its careful ability to toe the line between real facts and higher-level thinking and questions, and its mix of intrigue with court proceedings place it on the level of John Grisham, but with a deeper attention to political detail and broader ethical and moral considerations that make it especially intriguing for political-minded readers.”
— D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

THE TRIAL OF JANE FONDA

Anne returned to the UK to play Jane Fonda in The Trial of Jane Fonda.

The play ran at London's Park Theatre from July 14 through Aug. 20, 2016.

The play revolves around the true story of a trip that Jane Fonda took to North Vietnam in 1972, where she is photographed laughing and clapping, astride an anti-aircraft gun, designed to shoot down American planes. Overnight the soldiers' sexy pin-up becomes “Hanoi Jane”; traitor to her country and betrayer of those very young men. The play is set iin Waterbury, CT in 1988, when bitter demonstrations by veterans halt filming on a movie co-starring Fonda and Robert De Niro. Determined to stop her past dictating her future, she requests a meeting and enters a room full of angry men for whom the war still rages. The actual content of the meeting was never divulged. The play conjectures what battles were likely fought in that encounter.

Anne was previously seen in the West End as Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate. Her other extensive stage credits include A Coupla White Chicks Sitting Around Talking (Off Broadway), Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Williamstown Theatre Festival), The Poison Tree (Mark Taper Forum) and The Vagina Monologues (L.A.).

Writer Terry Jastrow has produced and/or directed the television coverage of some of the world’s most important sporting events including six Olympic Games, The Super Bowl, 62 major championships of golf including the Open Championship. The plays he has written and directed include As if it Mattersat the Beverly Hills Playhouse, Eight One Acts over Two Nights at The Acting Center, Hollywood, California, and The Vaginal Lock at the Skylight Theatre, Los Angeles.

It is directed by Joe Harmston, with set design by Sean Cavanagh, sound design and music by Matthew Bugg, video projection design by Louise Rhoades-Brown, lighting by Tony Simpson and costumes by Roberto Surace. It is produced by Acute Theatre Limited and Dann Moss in association with Park Theatre.

TRAFFICKED

In 2015 Anne appeared in the feature film TRAFFICKED, also starring Ashley Judd. Trafficked from three different worlds, three young women - Sara, a spirited American orphan; Amba, a sheltered college-bound Indian teenager; and Mali, a poor Nigerian villager - band together to survive the horrors of forced prostitution in a Texas brothel, run by the tyrannical Simon. On the verge of losing all hope, and despite terrible odds, Sara unites the girls in a daring escape attempt. It's not only a race against time, but a race against destiny and with a little luck; they just might be able to bring Simon down along the way. Trafficked is a riveting story of organized crime, global human trafficking networks, and above all, the indomitable will to be free.
