Description

In January 2011, Artists Repertory Theatre invited playwrights from across the county to submit their ideas for the now-named Fowler/Levin Prize. Of the 14 playwrights who submitted proposals, Andrea Stolowitz’s play concept was the unanimous choice by the artistic leadership at the theatre.

Stolowitz’s challenging new work explores the life of a woman Marine who served in Afghanistan and her subsequent re-entry to civilian life. The play follows the emotional journey of this woman through the American landscape, as she is forced to either face her demons or be consumed by them. Stolowitz’s work draws from interviews with veterans and their families. This is a play “about the intensity of human connections in a war zone and at home,” says the playwright, Andrea Stolowitz. “[This is] a play for our times about war, friendships, guilt, being human, and staying alive.”  

With the generosity and vision of the commissioning donors, Stephanie Fowler and Irving Levin, Artists Rep supported the writing of this script with workshops over the course of the year and will now present the World Premiere.
