In honor of Veteran’s Day, Capital Repertory Theatre is staging a special evening performance of The American Place Theatre’s production of Tim O’Brien’s masterwork of contemporary literature and Vietnam War remembrance. Adapted in collaboration with the author, this production is a searing 60 minute monologue selected verbatim from the novel that takes the audience through a harrowing journey with its young inductee.
