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."
"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)
