A Green River

The Mississippi Bend Players will present A Green River, an original work by local playwright Aaron Randolph III, July 5-7 and 12-14.

Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.

Army soldier Erik White, having been stationed overseas, has returned home to a world he no longer recognizes. Erik must face the challenges of everyday life, including bearing the weight of his haunted memories, while continuing to struggle with a war he can't leave behind.

A Green River mixes naturalistic dialogue with a non-linear structure that allows the audience to experience a troubled soldier's state of mind.

The play is the second of the Mississippi Bend Players' 2019 summer series: "The Military Through the Years." It will be followed by  Dames at Sea July 26-28 and Aug. 2-4.

"The Military Through the Years" salutes all active, reserve, and retired military personnel. A military ticket discount is available to all military and their families. Choose the military discount when buying tickets online or mention it when calling the ticket office.

Tickets are $20 per person; or $15 for seniors, children and any student with ID; $10 for members of the military and their families.
