Lonely Soldiers: Women at War in Iraq (March 16 – April 6)

Posted on February 28, 2014 by


by Helen Benedict

March 16–April 6, 2014, The History Theater, St. Paul, MN

The stories of soldiers on the front lines of American’s most recent wars are unlike any that came before – especially for women in uniform. This provocative and timely play by award-winning author Helen Benedict, is based on interviews with soldiers stationed on the front lines in Iraq; these are the real words of eight battle-tested women warriors recounting their experiences on battlefield and in the barracks, and their personal journeys toward recovery and justice. Honest, heartfelt, and current, this play directed by Austene Van, opens the door for conversations about war, gender, and the challenges facing the next generation of American soldiers.

Enjoyed most by ages 16+
