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.
Our 2016 performance, co-produced by Tom Berry and The Telling Project, and supported by The Jackson Institute for Public Policy, The Yale School of Drama and Adept Word Management will receive a reprise performance at Lincoln Center, presented by the Lincoln Center Veterans Initiative. Directed by Kevin Hourigan and scripted by Jonathan Wei, this unprecedented performance, in which US military veterans and refugees from Iraq and Afghanistan shared the stage, was covered by NPR’s Morning Edition when it opened.
Date and time: November 10, 7:30pm. Location: The Lincoln Center Atrium.
Tonight is the night!!!
A wonderful piece in the Orlando Sentinel about “Telling: Orlando,” our third (but far from last) production with the Florida Humanities Council. If you are in the Orlando area, don’t miss this performance! See you there.
Our collaboration with Chattanooga State Community College will go to stage September 23rd, kicking off our fall season of public performances. We’ve loved working with the great folks at CSCC, and are really excited to see this wonderful production come to stage. Six performances at the Humanities Auditorium – see you there!
This is very exciting – below is a partial list of public media stations that will be broadcasting the film “Veterans: The Telling Project,” documenting our 2015 project in Tampa Bay.
