The Telling Project
UMSL Theatre Department
Various dates & times
Free & open to the public
St. Louis veterans and family members share their stories through the Telling Project collaboration, Telling: St. Louis. Local military veterans and their families use theatre to tell their communities about their experiences. The project aims to ease veterans’ transitions, give communities an opportunity to benefit from the skills and experience that veterans bring home, and deepen the understanding and connection between veterans and the communities in which they live.
The Telling Project, founded in 2008 to provide veterans and family members a forum for sharing their personal, military-related stories, is coming to St. Louis. Having previously staged performances in 35 cities and 19 states, the organization is partnering with the Bob Woodruff Foundation and with UMSL in 2016.
