The Virginia War Memorial Foundation will present four one-act plays written by Virginia veterans, which will be professionally produced and performed with leadership from Virginia Rep, under the program title, War in Pieces. This project has also received funding from The Carpenter Foundation.
This co-production has grown out of the VWMF's unique veteran program, The Mighty Pen Project, which offers intensive writing classes to help and encourage veterans to commit their memories and reflections to paper, forming a living documentary of American military service. New York Times bestselling author David L. Robbins leads this unique program, and will direct all of the One-Acts.
Play Titles and Descriptions:
Each performance includes all 4 plays.
The God of Baghdad (by Philip Trezza) - A young Army medic, the first to respond to a car bombing in Baghdad, finds himself playing God, determining which victims may live and who cannot be saved.
Dress Code (by Joseph Maslanka) - Recently out of the Marine Corps, Joe returns to work in the family bar in Philadelphia. A couple of patrons push his buttons, and he has to figure out if he's ready to be an ex-Marine.
Living on a Prayer (by Rev. Laura Bender) - A twenty-five year Navy/Marine chaplain answers the call for everyone in need, the wounded, the bereaved, the homesick and the frightened. But who does she talk to?
King Baby (by Daniel Barotti) - Crossing The Line is a time-honored seaman's tradition whenever a vessel crosses the equator. But this time, a leviathan Chinese destroyer shadows a U.S. Navy ship, putting the celebration at risk of an international confrontation at sea.
