Raconteurs & Balladeers By Sven Swenson

They lived together in a world few of us really know or ever truly understand, sometimes sleeping sitting up with only one another’s backs to lean on. All saw the best and worst in each other and some had to dig deep to find a reason to be prepared to die for the man standing next to him. Even if one grew to loathe another, still they would remain inescapably brothers forever.

These days, since being discharged, these veterans of the war in Afghanistan reunite to rehearse the repertoire of their defunct garage band and relive memories that can’t be shared with others in their lives. Tonight, an absentee comrade will return to the fold and it will not be as easy to ignore the ghost of the dead soldier who haunts every reunion, or to gloss over the mystery of his death and the cover up that followed.

Patrons are advised that that performance deals with issues of child abuse, violence & PTSD.
