Join us for an outdoor staged reading of LZ Bravo: A Vietnam Tour of Duty, an original, one-act drama conceived by John Heavey, local actor and drama director at Tabor Academy. The play is based in part on Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam, as well as other oral histories and writings from men and women who served in Vietnam. You’ll hear the poignant voices of over three dozen characters, servicemen, and nurses who endured their year-long tour of duty in “the Nam,” as well as families back home in the US. Heavey will lead a discussion following the show.
