Bent Compass

  • By Neil Brookshire and Colin Sesek

Following the journey of an Army Medic from fresh recruit to seasoned combat veteran, the text of BENT COMPASS is taken from transcribed interviews detailing the effects of war on a personal level. The stories begin with Colin, years after his deployment, as a student teacher who witnesses an event during one of his teaching assignments. Because of his combat experience, he sees the situation differently than the other teachers. At once personal, reflective, humorous, raw, and candid, these stories honor a man whose unique perspective speaks to both veterans and non-combat civilians alike.

This is a special performance hosted by Alley Rep.
