About the Play

A close-knit group of high school seniors in a small town in Washington State are convinced that the 2003 public pronouncement of “Mission Accomplished” means the end of combat is near—some join the military, anticipating light duty and a ticket to a college education and a better future. The play examines the consequences of this choice, both for those who fight and those of us who wait at home.

This drama uses sound, light, music, and multimedia effects to take us inside the experiences of these young soldiers and move us between past and present, fantasy and reality, and in and out of the mind of a young soldier.
This provocative drama challenges us to go inside the experience of the young soldiers who fight our wars. How do they return from the horrors of the battlefield? How do we care for them? And what atonement is required of all of us?
