Telling: San Antonio
For many civilians, the realities of war are just images on the local news from far-off lands in upheaval. Most only hear about war from talking heads, not from those who lived it. In Telling: San Antonio, a performance piece organized by playwright Jonathan Wei, veterans and their families were given a voice to share their experiences. A dozen local vets from all walks of life practiced their monologues for weeks and presented their stories at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. What they said will make you laugh, and make you cry.
