Cry Havoc is a one-person play that unites veterans with civilians. It shows us that the military men and women of Shakespeare’s time wrestled with the same hopes and worries that occupy our modern lives. It explores the difficulties that our veterans and their families face.
Free, but an RSVP is required.
After two years of paralysis from a high school sports injury, after six years in the United States Army, after a full blown transition into a classic case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Stephan Wolfert hopped off an Amtrak train deep in the mountains of Montana, far from home, close to the middle of nowhere, and without the first damn clue of what to do for the rest of his life.
Until, as fate would literally have it, he stepped into a local theater and saw a production of William Shakespeare’s Richard III.
Twenty years later, using Shakespeare’s timeless words, and a few of his own, actor/veteran Stephan Wolfert in Cry Havoc leads an interactive journey to meet Shakepeare’s veterans.
