“Provocative and powerful” - The New York Times
How do you go from battlefields to summer barbecues? What price does a family pay when husbands, wives, sons and daughters go off to war? Based on interviews and testimony of soldiers and their families, this staged reading of ReEntry explores the challenges faced by over a dozen service members and their loved ones as they transition between home and deployment. Honest, moving and surprisingly funny, it takes you into the world of families and Marines as they get ready for and return from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Characters directly address the audience as they speak the real words of veterans and their families, give unvarnished answers about what they’ve seen, and tell of the joys, challenges and frustrations of returning home from war.
"Powerful high wattage theater. Scalding, moving, and highly entertaining…. [places] hot-blooded life on the stage, a rare accomplishment that deserves to be lauded and, more importantly, seen." - Backstage
