DIS-LOCATION AND RE-DISCOVERY: FOUR STAGED READINGS

ELLIOT, A SOLDIER’S FUGUE BY QUIARA ALEGRÍA HUDES

Directed by Michael Garcés

The play, through lyrical “fugues” and “preludes” in the form of letters and narrative, follows three generations of military men in a Puerto Rican-American family. In the family’s run-down barrio vegetable garden, Elliot, the son, returning as a wounded hero from Iraq, craves a conversation with his father, who served in Vietnam, and his grandfather, who fought in Korea, about the realities of war. This causes the three to reveal their never-spoken stories of war horror and family love.

6:30 p.m., Thursday, March 24, 2005, Martin E. Segal Theatre
