Word for Word: You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon
Word for Word, a program of Z Space, gives its signature theatrical treatment to Siobhan Fallon's gripping portrayal of the home front during the Iraq War, You Know When the Men Are Gone. The two interconnected stories, 'The Last Stand' and 'Gold Star,' show experiences of war -- how those who are left behind to carry on survive their daily lives, as well as what it's like for the wounded vet 'returning to normal.' Word for Word's ensemble transforms short works of fiction into fully staged pieces of theater without changing a word of the original text. Show times vary.
