Based on the literary classic, The Things They Carried is the powerful telling of Tim O’Brien’s personal journey from his innocent years in rural Minnesota to the jungles of Vietnam.
A one-person tour-de-force, this play explores the lines between truth and reality as fact and fiction blur in this unforgettable soldier’s journey.
Truthful, gripping and gutsy
