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

This was the first time I've been to an event such as this. Very casual environment and you never know what you'll get. I will say the way the program is set up the 2nd half is not appropriate for children. Eyes were opened to acts that I would have never gone to see on a normal basis. Even the house band The Smarts were wonderful to listen to - very talented group of guys. Was given a ballot to vote on the best group for the evening. This also included a space to request more information about a group you may have really liked. Prizes were given away and everyone got a goodie bag one their way out the door. Had a great time.
