Inspirational, honest, even heartwarming, frank, and surprisingly funny. This acclaimed new play by Emily Ackerman and KJ Sanchez is directed by Sanchez, and based on interviews with Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families. It puts aside politics and Hollywood alike to probe the unvarnished and powerfully personal truths of those who serve and sacrifice. How do you shift seamlessly from battlefields to backyard barbecues? What is the price paid by families at home when husbands, mothers, sons, and sisters go to war?
