Combat Fatigue. Shell Shock. PTSD. Melancholia.
For some soldiers, there can be something worse than being shot and killed in battle – surviving. The Latino Theater Company’s Melancholia returns to the LATC by popular demand this Spring. This stylized performance explores the life of a young Latino marine who returns from the Iraq war and struggles to reconnect to a world that no longer makes sense. Inspired by true events. 2007 Amnesty International “Freedom of Expression” Award Nominee.
“…a must see performance…both beautifully resonant and horrifically blunt ...” The Scotsman, Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
