The American Soldier
Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!
Run Time: 85 min.
The American Soldier has performed at The Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, American Legion National headquarters, Off Broadway and countless theaters and art center across the country for the past 4 and half years for veterans and audiences. It has been nominated for an Amnesty International Award for theatre excellence, received 4 stars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and been featured in The Huffington Post, The Military Times, The Washington Post and Time Out to name a few.
The American Soldier is based on real stories and accounts from soldiers’ letters written from the American Revolution through current day Afghanistan. It reveals the struggles American soldiers face at war and their internal struggles to come back home. The show strives to help us understand how and why it is so difficult for men and women in the armed services to re-enter our pedestrian life when they come home. It honors and exposes their flaws, their scars, their families and spirits with darkness and humor.
The American Soldier is a veteran-themed play, but it is also a human story that shares how so many different nationalities and races have believed and committed to the idea of what makes America so beautiful. How so many men and women have put on, and are willing to put on the uniform, to fight, to defend and give the ultimate sacrifice for America, and what it stands for.
There will be a Q& A after the show.
