On top of terrorists, IEDs, hostile populations and hellish conditions, female soldiers in the U.S. military face another enemy -- sexism -- that must be battled at the front and at home, on-duty and off. Worse, it is an enemy that is often fought alone, without help or even acknowledgement of colleagues and superiors. Lonely Soldiers: Women at War in Iraq is a play that explores the struggles, both visible and invisible, facing today's female soldiers. Adapted from Helen Benedict's book The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq, the play features monologues and scenes taken directly from Benedict's interviews with real soldiers. Directed by Austene Van, Lonely Soldiers stars seven actresses playing specific soldiers who served during the early years of the Iraq War. Learn More

A very powerful & inspirational story and acting. Katie Law-Gotich does an amazing job as Maria Goretti!
Mercy Unrelenting recounts the events surrounding the tragic murder of a young Italian teenager, Maria Goretti, and the later reformation of her murderer, Alessandro Serenelli.
The play begins 50 years after the crime when Alessandro, now an old man living in an obscure Franciscan monastery, is confronted with his painful history once again and the challenge of trying to bring good from the evils of his past.
Mercy Unrelenting tells a shockingly dramatic story in a beautifully artistic way, exploring the nature of forgiveness, the possibility of redemption, and the sometimes controversial elements that surround this story. Written by Jeremy Stanbary, whose original dramas have been performed for tens of thousands across the U.S. as well internationally since 2003.
Mercy Unrelenting is recommended for those age 13 or older. Parental discretion is advised.
This show's running time is two hours.
