War is hard to talk about. The United States and its allies have been fighting a global war on terror for nearly twenty years, but the conversation about it is not getting easier. It is stunted by treatments of the topic that transport us right to the front lines but still keep us at a safe distance from the complex human experience. War Words, a work of documentary theatre based on interviews with the men and women who have done the fighting, instead will explore that experience and develop the conversation. In this work, you will hear their true stories of heroism, pathos, and villainy, but also share the exhilaration, sorrow, and regret of their experience. You will enjoy getting to know these warriors. Your affinity for them may surprise you.
