ReEntry is an unflinching look at the lives of Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. An honest, moving, surprisingly funny play based on interviews with privates and colonels, combat vets and clerks, and one particularly memorable family.
With military in their family, writers Emily Ackerman & KJ Sanchez set out to tell the truth about our retuning military. Interviewing over 100 people including vets, family members and high ranking officers, Ackerman and Sanchez used these interviews as dialogue for ReEntry. Early in the process, to get the cast in the right frame of mind, they enlisted former US Marine Drill Sergeant Joseph Harrell, who put the cast through a mini Boot Camp and was soon cast in the familiar role
of the CO. Variety called his performance "astonishing."
ReEntry runs through March 7, 2010
Performance Schedule: Wednesday - Saturday at 8PM;
