From the Department of Drama:

Reintegration into society after the experiences of war is oftentimes very difficult for those in the military. After all the action, devastation and noise, everyday life may be quite the challenge. For U.S. Marine Jenny Sutter this is certainly true. Haunted by her war experience and not quite ready to pick up where she left off, Jenny takes a side trip to Slab City - "The Last Free Place on Earth," a place for societal misfits who prefer to live outside the norm, do as they please and not interfere with the liberty of others.  It is here where the permanent residents help Jenny heal her internal war wounds and gently persuade her to rejoin society and return to her children.

Performances: March 1st, 2nd and 3rd at 7:30pm and March 4th at 2:00pm.

Ticket prices: $12 General Admission, $10 Military Veterans/Faculty/Senior Citizens, $7 students/ OLLI members (taxes and fees not included).
