This is a unique theater experience that is more like an anthology than a play. The actors were excellent. It covers thoughts on war through personal written accounts from the American Revolution to Iraq. It is not a particularly political piece which keeps it honest because all types of opinions and feelings are covered in these letters. I would recommend it to anyone. It's about 1-1/2 hours long. The very sparse set is complimented by interesting full screen backdrops that change throughout the performance. The theater is a nice intimate size. Bravo to Chapman's theater department for taking on this world premier.
