"When I get home....you gonna tell me your stories." In this poetic and inventive Pulitzer-Prize nominated play about family legacy and service, Quiara Alegría Hudes (book writer of In The Heights) draws from interviews with her own military family to explore the influence of military service and proud Puerto Rican heritage across three generations of the Ortiz family. At the crux of the play, Elliot, a young veteran, weighs inheritance, duty, love, and legacy, as he debates whether to re-enlist for a second tour in Iraq. Tracking the family member's deployments in three separate conflicts, the play explores the history of service, and the bonds forged across generations, through the stories they share, and the ones they can't.
