The Hero

The Great War sets the scene of this family drama

Author Gilbert Emery’s The Hero is not a play about war, but rather of a fragmented family reconnected after the prodigal son returns after 16 years of being estranged. Newly released after World War I, Oswald comes home a hero and regains the respect of his whole family and town, but everything is not as it seems on the surface. The production forces you to reconsider your definition of heroism and its meaning to our society. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Please note that this venue is not handicapped accessible.
