About this Event

A solo show based on actual accounts and letters written by veterans and their families from the American Revolution through current day Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

It strives to help us understand why it is so difficult for our veterans to re-enter our pedestrian life when they come home after experiencing combat, and examines the incredible sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.

Performed for veterans and audiences in 16 cities and 11 states, with notable spaces like the Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, American Legion's National Headquarters, New York Federal Reserve Bank and the American Revolution Museum to name a few. Has also been invited back to the Kennedy Center on November 13th.

NOMINATED FOR AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL AWARD

"Your performance was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen on stage. I served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a lot of times when people come up to me and ask me how does it feel to experience war, I personally can never find the works to express my experience, the way your performance did. Your performance says it all and your play is a voice for veterans. Thank you! "
