WAR IN PIECES festival

world premieres

new plays by David Aldridge, Rachel Landsee, Robert Waldruff, Charles Williamson

in partnership with the Virginia War Memorial and Mighty Pen Project

Sept/Oct 2021

A one-act festival featuring four new plays written by military veterans about tipping-point moments in their lives when they could have been killed or died.

David Aldridge takes us on a ride to a crossroads, when time stops and a choice is made in BONNE ANNÉE; Rachel Landsee uses music and fantasy to create a surreal battleground where the knowns of military life collide with the unknowns of life outside the military in SOAR; Robert Waldruff drops us in a hot zone in Vietnam where a mysterious rescue raises more questions than it answers in GUARDIAN ANGELS; and Chuck Williamson invites us to join a group of soldiers at the moment when their world is flipped upside down in SKYLINE.
