War. To those who experience it from the comfort of their living rooms, they have no idea. For those who have experienced it first hand, we have no idea. Now is the time to crack open the door to understanding and conversation in Soldier Songs.
Gripping and realistic, Soldier Songs traces the shift in perception of war from the age of 6 to the age of 66. We follow the lead character through the phases of life from boy to man: playing war games and violent video games as a youth, enlisting and serving in the military, the real-life horrors of war and a father whose worst fears are realized with the news of the death of his son. Adapted from interview with veterans of five wars, explore the ideas versus the realities of the Soldier, the exploration of loss and exploitation of innocence, and the “seemingly impossible” of expressing the truth of war.

Starring David Adam Moore.

Tickets start at $20
