After six years in the army, Stephan Wolfert hopped off the Amtrak deep in the mountains of Montana and found himself at a performance of RICHARD III that would change his life forever. In this heartrending one-man show, Wolfert examines his own experience pre- and post-service, in the lines of some of Shakespeare’s most famous
speeches. Through his own personal insights, he explores our societal neurosis of war, and questions, is there room for improvement in the way in which we reintegrate our Vets back into society? The military recruits citizens and trains them to kill, but what does the “de-cruit” process look like? How do we re-learn to live together?
Trigger warning: CRY HAVOC! contains strong language and strong content.
Blue Star Theatres is a collaboration between Theatre Communications Group and Blue Star Families, with leadership support from the MetLife Foundation. This initiative is intended to recognize the contributions of service families, to build stronger connections between the theatre community and military families in communities all across the country and to help in whatever small way we can to aid service people and their families as they seek to be integrated into the lives of their communities.
