This is a soldier’s story. Stu Richel proudly served in the U.S. Army and, through much of 1969, was a combat photographer/writer with the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam; it is that service which provides the impetus for this solo performance. No blood and guts. No political statements. Lots of humor…and pathos. Just one guy’s intensely personal perspective.
Stu shares memories, photos, reflections, all related directly or indirectly to his service in Vietnam…the odd path by which he got there, what he did there, how that service has affected his life. His journey, if you will. His words are made even more vivid with video projections, some from his Vietnam Tour. Whatever your political persuasion, his stories will touch your heart…and bring on a smile.
“In his simple storytelling style, Stu can make the ordinary seem extraordinary, the everyday seem heroic.” David Lally, NY Indie Theatre Now
“It is real, honest, moving, a particularly American work.” Constance Rodgers, Front Row Center
“absolutely engaging, realistic yet primarily light-hearted view of a war that tore not only Vietnam, but this country, to shreds ” Karen D’Onofrio, OffBway Blog
