Lonely Soldiers: Battles of Female Soldiers in Iraq Explored in New Play
COMP - $18*
$32 - $36
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.
