Greensboro College Theatre Presents Military Docudrama "In Conflict" Sept. 10-13

"GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro College Theatre presents Douglas Wager's military docudrama "In Conflict" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 10-12, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12-13, in the Annie Sellars Jordan Parlor Theatre in Main Building on campus.

The production is directed by theatre education major Lilly Allemond '16. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 seniors (all prices include sales tax), and can be reserved by calling 336-272-7102, ext. 5242, or emailing

"In Conflict" tells the individual stories of mostly college-age Iraq War veterans presented in their own words, taken from audio transcripts of actual interviews.

Already having faced brutal combat conditions in a hostile land, these soldiers have come home to the daunting challenges of returning to civilian life. Their remarkable accounts are as diverse as their backgrounds, representing America in all its complexity and humanity.

Honoring the courage and desire of the individuals who serve their country, "In Conflict" illuminates the traumatic human cost of war, as well as the physical, moral, and spiritual conundrum that each returning veteran of the war now faces.

Greensboro College's Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.
