Written based on true accounts, this powerful drama tells the stories of six courageous women sent to serve in Vietnam during the war: three nurses, a Red Cross volunteer, an intelligence officer and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play follows their journey from recruitment, to Vietnam, to a visit to the memorial wall in Washington, DC.

Tickets may be purchased online (preferred) or at the door 30 minutes prior to curtain. Seating is limited.
