PACH and Promundo are pleased to present CRY HAVOC, an integrative, interactive theater piece that combines the speeches of William Shakespeare’s soldiers with the personal service experiences of its writer and performer, Stephan Wolfert, a six-year veteran of the United States Army. CRY HAVOC underscores the necessity of collectively addressing the question posed by Shakespeare’s Richard III and faced by veterans once they leave the service: “Now what?”

Following the ninety-minute performance will be a post-show discussion, which will include: Dr. Jim Gilligan, Dr. Carol Gilligan (PACH Founder), Dr. Niobe Way (PACH Founder), Gary Barker (Promundo), and Tina Packer (Founder of Shakespeare & Company).
