Centenary Stage Company / Women Playwrights Series

April 4 - 14

Kutz Theatre : 715 Grand Avenue

by Jacqueline Goldfinger

A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere!  When a soldier returns from war carrying the ghosts of their tour, they're faced with a sobering decision:   address their alarming PTSD with Virtual Reality therapy, or risk losing access to their family forever.  Can this new technology recalibrate the brains and bodies of wounded soldiers?  This electric, vivid, one-person show explores the power of healing and finding strength in vulnerability.  Developed with support from the Sloan Foundation and Operation Warrior Resolution.
