The weather was somewhat cold, but the Red Line has a stop a block away, at Clybourn and North Ave.. I wore a pair of pants and sweater. Dress is very casual..

Well written, thoughtful subject. A bit too long and some of the acting left something to be desired.

Description

LiveWire Chicago presents __Oohrah! __

By Bekah Brunstetter, directed by Brad Akin

Featuring Peter Esposito, Joel Ewing*, Madeline Long*, Melissa Engle, Josh Odor, Calliope Porter and Ian R. Tranberg

Surprised by her husband’s early return from a tour in Iraq, Sara is unprepared for the complications of his re-entry into civilian life.  Tension simmers around their gun-obsessed teenage daughter, Sara’s oddball live-in sister Abby, and Abby’s newest infatuation – a sexy, young Marine who’s keeping a secret. Oohrah! turns a comic eye to a homecoming gone awry. **

Bekah Brunstetter’s plays include __A Long and Happy Life __(Naked Angels), __Be a Good Little Widow __(ARS NOVA, Collaboraction), House of Home (Williamstown Theater Festival), Oohrah! (Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater) and __Miss Lilly Gets Boned __(Finborough Theater). She is a member of The Primary Stages Writer’s Group, a New Voices/New York Fellow with The Lark Play Development Center and the 2011 Playwright in Residence at the Finborough Theater, London.  *
