The Vietnam War is a wound in our nation that has been allowed to heal uncleaned. The surface is smooth but the infection rages on inside. TRACERS is not a play about the war. It is about the soldiers, the grunts, the men who fought there. It represents the experiences shared by the men. It is the indomitable human spirit. In April of 1980, John Di Fisco organized a group of Vietnam Veterans, and through a series of workshops, improvs and rap sessions this script was born. This Spring The Kay Butler Performing Arts project takes on the enormous task of telling the story of the Vietnam Veterans. This show is dedicated to the 59,000 who died in the war and all those that have been effected by it since.
WARNING: TRACERS : contains scenes of violence and harsh language which may not be suitable for some audience members.
