Featuring the Cast of Thousands


"Vietnam 101: The War on Campus is a documentary theater piece based on recollections of over one hundred students at Oberlin College. The play recreates a time when people were asking the same questions that are being asked today about our government and our responsibilities. Combining monologues with Story Theater-type scenes, the play covers the years 1964 to 1970, from Lyndon Johnson's promise not to expand the war to Kent State and finally an epilogue from the present."

                                            -Playscripts, Inc.


"An entertaining primer, Vietnam 101: The War on Campus examines, with sensitivity, honesty, humility and wit, students protests' glory years."

                                                              -Philadelphia City Paper

    "While the play has a leftist anti-war bias, students strive to present a balanced view by including monologues and letters from vietnam veterans, many of whom are friends and relatives of the cast and crew. It makes for a powerful and thought-provoking slice of a time in our history that seems strangely familiar and current."

                                                                           -Maryann Green (Director)
