Feast of Crispian
Shakespeare With Veterans
All Veterans Production of Julius Caesar, sponsored by the Bader Philanthropies
Feast of Crispian (FoC) has been working with veterans in Milwaukee for over two years, using scenes from several of Shakespeare’s plays and simple acting exercises in order to help veterans better navigate their emotional lives. Now we are taking the next step forward in this journey with a full production of Julius Caesar acted by veterans, and beginning a dialogue with the civilian community about how to better accept permanently transformed veterans back into society.
