Directed by David Kersnar
A contemporary odyssey
Conflict stretches beyond the battlefield as a family grasps at a normalcy twisted by the experience of war. Inspired by the stories of veterans, this compelling drama explores the struggle of soldiers and their loved ones to navigate life after combat. Lookingglass Theatre Company founding member David Kersnar directs a world premiere loosely based on Homer’s epic Odyssey.
