EVENT DETAILS

7–8 pm: Stephan Wolfert recounts his own experiences of military service, weaving his personal narrative with lines from some of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches. Wolfert proposes that the military recruits citizens and trains them to kill, but asks what does the “de-cruit” process look like? How do civilians and veterans re-learn to live together?

8–9 pm: Stephan Wolfert joins five veterans from the conflicts in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan to discuss challenges they faced returning from battle and how they have dealt with them.

9–10 pm: Stephan Wolfert and the veterans on the panel will meet and greet audience members after the performance.
