The Village Voice called Arlington "a tightly packed little firecracker!" This one woman show is only the second regional production of the piece, which premiered at the Vineyard Theatre in New York in 2014.
Sara Jane, the prim and proper wife of soldier Jerry, spends an afternoon ruminating on her life: her plastic surgery obsessed mother, army veteran father, and Jerry, whose texts and photos from Iraq have become increasingly disturbing lately.Torn between her objections to the atrocities of war and her loyalty to her family’s service to their country, Sara Jane allows herself to reflect, for the first time, on what it truly means to love a soldier. Arlington is neither pro or anti-war, but asks us to consider the tough question of what war means for our country: past, present, and future. Unfettered, full of emotion, peppered with humor, and extremely thought provoking, Arlington will be a truly unique musical theatre experience.
Featuring Amber Nicole Dilger and Mark Wurzelbacher.
