VetRep is proud to hold a public reading of new play WAR WOUND by Philip Korth, in advance of possible future production. Set in Kuwait and Iraq during the early months of 2003, WAR WOUND follows a group of US Marines through the build-up to invasion and into the first tenuous days of a long, uncertain conflict. Together, they experience war for the first time and discover the boredom, brotherhood, and bloodshed that define combat. Blending documentary-style realism and elements of epic theatricality, this drama is more about filling sandbags than bodybags. Its conflicts are taut, brutal, but ultimately anti-climatic, as so few aspects of modern war prove to match the Marines' expectations. WAR WOUND is a story common to all soldiers' experiences but still unique to the generation that fought in Iraq and Afghanistan at the beginning of the century. Its characters come to bear the scars all veterans carry, living and dead, injured and uninjured.
