Midwest Vets to Tell Their Stories on Stage

In a series of November and December performances, Working Group Theatre will present "Telling: Iowa City," a play taken directly from the stories of Eastern Iowa veterans, and performed by the veterans themselves. The creative process is based on a project founded in Eugune, Ore. by Jonathan Wei.

The cast comprises nine veterans of various ages, ranks, genders, and experiences both overseas and stateside. As the theater group's publicity materials note: "The veterans’ service to our country spans over half a century, from the streets of Baghdad to the jungles of Indochina."
