NOVEMBER 3 – 19, 2011THE WORKSHOP THEATER, 312 W 36th St, 4th Floor
Wheeler and Corso, two injured Iraq War veterans, recuperate in the rehab unit of a stateside Army hospital. Their friendship is based on a profane camaraderie and a shared, if unstated, experience of war. Both men, however, are bored and sliding towards burnout, worn down by the weight of their injuries and the impersonal face of the Army bureaucracy. The arrival of Davis, a third injured vet, serves to rejuvenate the other two soldiers, providing them with a fresh, if unconventional, mission to focus on. Their subversive quest on Davis’ behalf leads to a renewed sense of hope for all three of them.
