Under the direction of Veteran Artist Program Artistic Director Heather Mayes and in conjunction with MHCA, seven Baltimore area military veterans and family members will take the stage in a live performance of their own words transcribed and scripted from interviews conducted by playwright Jonathan Wei of The Telling Project. After extensive interviews, performance training, and rehearsals, this cast is taking the bold step of “telling” the story of life and the military. Stories from a mother of a fallen marine, an active duty medic, a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” veteran, and other personal accounts of service make this a must-see event that will change the way our veterans communicate with the community they live in. David Dower of the Arena Stage says this project has "the potential to radically re-define the idea of the military in the American consciousness".
NOTE: THIS EVENT CONTAINS MATURE LANGUAGE AND THEMES OF WAR AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN.
