Vietnam Vets: 'Private Wars' is for You and It Only Runs Two More Performances

Vietnam Veterans, here’s a play for you and it only has two more performances to run in downtown Roanoke at Studio Roanoke. 

I’m hearing great things about "Pvt. Wars" and I'll be there tonight. 

Here’s the detail you need: “Pvt. Wars” is a one-act, three-character) comic drama running about an hour and 15 minutes with no intermission. 

The play is about three Vietnam veterans recuperating in a VA Hospital and the fragile bonds of friendship that form between them. It is a very funny and touching play by James McLure, who died earlier this year. It is set in the late 1960s/early ‘70s. The show closes on the 23rd (Saturday). 

There are performances tonight and tomorrow night at 8 p.m. (house opens at 7:30 and a cash bar is available) at Studio Roanoke, 30 West Campbell. 

Writer Ibby Greer says, “The acting was super. Black comedy, sad passages, poignant, good dialogue. Brought back that era with a punch.”

Tickets are $12 for most of us and $8 for students. They can be reserved at 540-343-3054 or bought online here.
