LIVE: “War Stories” @ Proctors, 4/24/12

Review by Fred Rudofsky

During a terse monologue titled “Dedication of the Vietnam Memorial (Nov. 11, 1982),” an anonymous figure turns to the audience and declares, “No war ends.” That motif informed a remarkable debut of “War Stories,” directed by Cindy Bates.

Presented in a series of first-person accounts, vignettes, essays, poems and short stories written by Empire State College students and performed by college students and professional actors, “War Stories” chronicles the effects of a century of wars upon those who served, as well as those who find themselves impacted by separation and loss on the home front.
