Join The Community Library for a reading of a play-in-progress with actor and writer Neil Brookshire.
Inspired by research for an acting part, Neil contacted long time friend, Colin, to discuss his military experiences, and the challenges and differences of before and after war. Further conversations led to the development a one-person play based on many of Colin’s stories from his time as a medic in the Army, exploring how a “new normal” takes hold of the lives of those in combat, and by extension, everyone around them.
