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.
Each performance will feature a talk-back and Q&A session with military veterans and the show's cast and director.
Pre-show entertainment will be offered in the newly opened Anderson Outdoor Pavilion at the Brunner Theatre Center. The band Control Room will play from 6:45-7:15 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 1:15-1:45 on Sundays.
The play contains adult language and content, including portrayals and depictions of battlegrounds, gunfire, and death that could be potentially triggering for some audience members. The play is intended for mature audiences only.
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.
