WOMEN and WAR
November 8-10, 2019
Through correspondence and monologues, in the style of reader’s theater, this one act play by Jack Hilton Cunningham is a collection of fictional stories based on historical fact, told by generations of Americans impacted by conflict from The Great War to the War in Afghanistan. From housewife to worker, young bride to nurse, mother to widow, and now, young woman to soldier, these are tales of sacrifice, love, determination and hope told by those who bravely persevere on the home front and on the battlefield.
“Deeply touching and educational…this play is an emotional roller coaster. These accounts are moving…funny, exciting, humbling, and incredibly sad all at the same time.” – The Easy
“Awe inspiring. Playwright Cunningham is a magician delivering the internal voices of multiple generations of women who’ve served as wives, nurses, sweethearts and officers spanning from WWI to Afghanistan. Women and War is essential theater. A moving and poignant scrapbook of the American war experience.” – United Stages
