Don’t miss the chance to attend a reading of Returning Soldiers Speak’s Grandfathered: Where War Lingers on March 23 at 8pm, as part of EST/LA’s L.A. FEST Annual Celebration of the Distinct Voices of Los Angeles. Reading by Adam Cloys, George Cantero, Terre Fallon Lindseth, Lucy Meseberg, Scott Mueller, Les Probst and Leilani Squire and directed by Keith Szarabajk.

Returning Soldiers Speak is a venue for soldiers and veterans of all conflicts and wars to tell their stories through the spoken word so we who are left behind can listen to what they have to tell. This year a group of these writers joined together to tell several stories together in one play.

Grandfathered: Where War Lingers tells the story of a military family of several generations coming together under one roof to face each other and their haunted pasts.

This is a work-in-development that EST/LA is devoted to helping nurture into a production-ready script. We will have two public readings during LA Fest, each with a post-show conversation about the work and its important message.

Location: Ensemble Studio Theatre/LA 3269 Casitas Ave Los Angeles, CA 90039
