With much the same courage demonstrated during their service to our country, local military personnel and family members share their authentic experiences. This production is sure to strengthen our sense of community by opening hearts and minds and facilitating meaningful contact between civilians and those who have served. No one will leave this performance untouched or unchanged. This is a collaboration between The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute for Mental Health Education at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, The Telling Project based out of Austin Texas and Piven Theatre.

Please let me know if you will be attending any of these events!
