In March, 2017, SHE WENT TO WAR opened at The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis to rave reviews. A three week run concluded with sold-out houses and standing ovations. SHE WENT TO WAR is new work by The Telling Project, an autobiographical performance by four female veterans, all of whom, in widely varying capacities, experienced significant combat exposure during their terms in the military. All of the women in SWTW have performed their stories with The Telling Project previously. Their stories speak to and for many, many more women whose roles put them in the line of fire. SWTW will be an opportunity for the American public to understand and acknowledge the distinctive and important roles women have played on the battlefield.
“She Went To War,” was supported generously by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Acton Family Fund, Adept Word Management and, of course, our very good friends at The Guthrie Theater.
It has never been more important that now to listen to one another.
