Event description

Description

Goat in the Road is pleased to bring back its critically acclaimed play Foreign to Myself, an original show about military Veterans and the difficulty of coming home during America’s period of endless war. This visually stunning, extensively researched production utilizes humor, historic accounts, personal interviews, scientific research, and immersive sound design to tell the story of Alex, a female Marine returning home after three tours of duty in Iraq.

Moving, inventive, funny and heartbreaking at the same time, the play is a gentle and persistent invitation to reflect on the divide between Veterans and civilians and how we begin to bridge that divide."
- Gala True, PhD, Associate Professor, Tulane University School of Medicine and Research Investigator, Department of Veterans Affairs

“Highlights the humanity both at the heart of the work and at the heart of the ensemble that brought it to life.”
