"Absolutely a knockout!" - The New York Times

In this powerful American masterpiece, four young soldiers fresh from boot camp wait anxiously in 1965 Virginia, watching the Vietnam conflict escalate. As they struggle to make sense of their new life in the army, tensions rise over race, sexuality, and class, culminating in an explosive act that changes them forever. Streamers is an unflinching exploration of the turmoil and confusion facing young men threatened by forces beyond their control.

David Rabe is the Tony Award-winning author of In the Boom Boom Room and Hurlyburly, and the screenplays for The Firm, Casualties of War, and I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can. Director Scott Ellis is the recipient of numerous Tony Award nominations, including Best Director for his recent Broadway revival of Twelve Angry Men.

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes; including one intermission
