Four soldiers in a Canadian infantry platoon fight the Taliban, only to return to an interrogation about a possible atrocity in the Panjwaii desert. Produced in collaboration with UF Arts in Medicine, this insightful and emotional look into the embittered psyche of soldiers in the aftermath of combat will have you asking– how do you cope amid all the bloodshed? Written by the author of the hit play East of BerlinThis is War is the winner of the 2014 Trillium Book Award, and the 2013 Toronto Theatre Critics’ Award for Best Canadian Play.

This Is War arrives to the Acrosstown’s stage on Thursday, May 31, and runs through June 10; Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm, Sundays at 2:00 pm, at the Acrosstown Repertory Theater (619 South Main Street, Gainesville, FL, 32601, in the historic Baird Center across from Heartwood Soundstage and next door to Akira Wood).
