And Comes Safe Home… is Feast of Crispian’s second full production with a veteran only cast. Last year FoC, with a cast of 15 vets, performed Julius Caesar at the Next Act Theater performance space. This year, And Comes Safe Home… will be a look at the lives of those who fight for their country, from Shakespeare to today. We will use scenes from Shakespeare’s plays and original scenes and songs devised from the personal stories of our veteran participants and cast members.
