Over 23 million living veterans have been wired for war but never re-wired to come home: Cry Havoc, a one-person play by military veteran Stephan Wolfert, that seamlessly interweaves Shakespeare’s most famous speeches with personal experience to help us understand the national crises we face when we fail in re-integrating our veterans.
The military recruits citizens and wires them for war, but does not un-wire them. What does the “De-Cruit® ” process look like? Is there room for improvement in the way in which we re-integrate our veterans back into society? How do we come together to re-learn how to live? The performance is followed by an engaging talk back between actor, audience, and veterans that dares to answer these questions.
Free and open to the public! One night only.
