The Telling Project

Featured Partner

We first worked with Dreux Carpenter as a designer in 2013, when he put together our imagery for the first “Telling: Austin, TX,” poster and program. Since then, we’ve returned to him repeatedly – for the quality, intelligence and integrity of his work. Most recently, we reached out to him to assist us with our “She Went to War,” promotional imagery. It was one of the largest scale productions we’ve ever undertaken, and we wanted to make sure it was done right. Dreux did not disappoint.

It’s our privilege to have this relationship. Check out his work at:

She Went To War

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.
