The American Soldier is a piece of theatre made to HONOR our Veterans and Military families. Its goal is to say THANK YOU to our Vietnam Veterans, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans and families of every other conflict American has been part of since the revolution. A play to give those who have no understanding or connection to the Military, a better understanding of what service and sacrifices is.
It is a powerful one-man show based on letters from Veterans and their families, spanning from the Revolution to our recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The script has been crafted through extensive research and countless interviews with veterans and their family members. It's a profoundly human story that honors our Veterans and their families and deepens our collective understanding of their experiences.
The American Soldier uses theatre to foster healing, connection, and community. It reminds us of the enduring strength and resilience of the human spirit and what we all have in common as Americans. It has performed in over 40 cities, including some of the nation's most notable theatres, like The Kennedy Center in 2016 & 2019, The Library of Congress twice, Off-Broadway twice, New York Federal Reserve Bank, and American Legion's National Headquarters, and earned a nominated for an Amnesty International Award and received 4 stars out of 5 at the Edinburgh Festival, Fringe for theatre excellence.
The American Soldier invites audiences to journey through the American story. It delves into the lives of 15 Veterans and their family members, sharing their stories of bravery and selflessness. It fearlessly reveals their wounds, using darkness and humor, and gives moments that resound with lasting meaning for audiences old enough to remember and those young enough to yearn for inspiration.
