Acts of Engagement
These veteran acted, veteran stories offer a wide range of experience from intimate and personal to world view and across gender, race and conflicts. The companies hail from New York, North Carolina, Florida, Texas and of course, Wisconsin.
Civilian audiences will find these performances powerfully moving, deeply affecting, and will grip their attention with excellent entertainment value. We hope to also see them learn something about the consequences of war that our families, neighbors, and fellow citizens must grapple with in our name. Suffering knows nothing of Red nor Blue.
Both FoC and The Telling project use theater to help veterans who, for the most part, have no acting experience express their personal stories. Stephan Wolfert, The Combat Hippies, and The Color of Courage are professional performers.
