FOREIGN TO MYSELF
Part of the CAC's 2016-2017 season, Foreign to Myself is an ensemble built performance that examines the shifting identity of the returning military veteran. Based on research into the history and science of trauma, along with dozens of interviews with post-deployment military personnel from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, GRP explores the many ways returning veterans navigate the world, and the inherent difficulties of re-entry.
Now in its eighth year, GRP’s Play/Write program has two components: teaching artist residencies in six New Orleans schools, and the Showcase of student works performed by local, professional performance companies.
GRP is thrilled to be working with St. Mary’s Academy, Success Preparatory Academy, The International Schools of Louisiana, Young Audiences Charter School, and Warren Easton High School to bring theatre and playwriting to over 200 students in New Orleans.
